Assault and Domestic Violence
Palm Beach Assault, Battery and Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Law Firm
The crime of Battery is defined as striking or touching another person against their will or intentionally causing bodily harm. The crime of Assault requires a threatening another person by word or action to do violence. Assault also requires an action that creates the other person to fear that “violence is imminent.”
Prosecutors often rely upon eye-witness or victim testimony to prove their battery and assault charges. They also look to physical evidence showing the extent of the victim’s injuries. If you have been charged with a battery or assault, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney to thoroughly investigate your case and determine if valid defenses can be raised.
An experience criminal defense attorney will be able to determine if the reliability of the State’s witnesses can be challenged. Does the victim have his or her own agenda? Did the victim provoke the situation or initiate contact? Were you acting in self-defense? There may be other mitigating factors in place, such as mental health issues or alcohol. Perhaps substance rehabilitation or anger management courses are better suited remedies than incarceration.
If you have been charged with battery or assault, you could be facing years in county jail or prison. This is not the time to take chances. Your future and your liberty interests are at stake. If you have been charged with assault or battery, you should hire an aggressive criminal defense attorney to zealously represent your interests in court.
