The Skill To Take On Assault And Battery Charges

Violent crimes are some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in the Illinois criminal justice system. Not all charges, however, arise out of a physical violent act. Assault charges can arise when an individual simply believes he or she is under the threat of physical harm.

What does this mean for the accused? You may have simply thought you were in a heated argument with a friend, neighbor or stranger. That person took things differently, and decided to take legal action against you.

What Defense Options Are Available For Me?

The circumstances that surrounded the violent incident are not always black and white. Unfortunately, whoever decided to press charges is often automatically viewed as the victim of a crime, even if the law says you, the accused, are innocent until proven guilty.

We know that many assault and battery cases are more complex than they seem. Did you, the accused, feel you were in danger of harm as well? Was a weapon involved or not? Was the weapon intended to be used or did it just happen to be in your possession at the time? These are examples of important details that need to be brought up as they can dramatically influence your case.
