Assault & Domestic Violence
Violent Crime | Criminal Defense of Assault and Domestic Violence Charges
Assault and battery are often included in one charge. Unlike assault, which can be the imminent threat of harm or contact, battery requires contact with the victim. Battery is a criminal charge that is the unlawful act of physically harming or offensively touching a person. A criminal conviction of such charges could damage your future education and job opportunities, and you need an experienced criminal attorney on your side to protect your rights and your future. The attorneys at Amburgey Law understand the confusion associated with the criminal charges of assault and battery and we support our clients through such challenging times.
Several different crimes could be charged if accused of larceny. Some offenses that fall under the general description of assault and battery are:
- Assault on a Female
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Assault with intent to kill or inflict serious injury
- Breach of Peace
- Disorderly Conduct
- Simple assault
- Simple or Aggravated Affrays
It is hard to follow the complicated rules and procedures used in the criminal justice system. The experienced criminal attorneys at Amburgey Law help our clients understand the charges and the options available while explaining the unique circumstances surrounding your case that may affect the outcome of your trial, including the severity of your penalty.
