The seriousness of assault charges

On Behalf of | Apr 21, 2016 | Felonies, Other Crimes

When it comes to assault charges, you are often behind the eight ball. And here is why: The authorities are more likely to believe the victim, especially if he or she has a good story.

Of course, this doesn’t do you any good. Instead, you are being treated unfairly for a crime that you may not have committed.

It doesn’t matter if you are an adult or juvenile, you could be charged with assault. But remember this: Just because you are charged with assault does not mean you will be convicted. There are defense strategies you can use to avoid serious trouble, thus putting this in the past once and for all.

The primary fear of an assault conviction is jail or prison time. Like everyone else, you never want to come to grips with the fact that you may have to spend time in jail or prison. There are other consequences as well, including the fact that you may lose your job. Along with this, it could also impact your ability to possess a firearm in the future.

If you don’t have plans on challenging assault charges, you could be missing out on something that allows you to avoid serious trouble. At our law firm, we know what goes into doing this with success.
