Why Hire An Assault Lawyer
An assault is the threat of physical harm that puts a person in fear of harm or injury. An assault occurs when a person threatens to do harm to another, whether or not that threat is carried out. You do not have to make contact with the victim in order for it to be assault. There are various avenues open for your attorney to pursue in defending your case.
For example, if a threat is made but is not carried out, and there is no battery, then it can be shown that the threat of violence was overstated. If the victim’s fear of being injured is exaggerated or unreal, then the case should be dismissed. The lawyers at Papcsy Janosov Roche can help assess your case and come up with the proper legal strategy.
Another avenue of defense may involve getting the charges dropped, in exchange for anger management. The assault charge, a class C misdemeanor, can carry jail time, a fine, and community service, so it is very important to contact competent legal advice as soon as possible. If you are charged with assault, contact the lawyers at Papcsy Janosov Roche to find out what your legal rights are and how your case should best be handled.
After the charges and arrest have been made, make sure that you have contacted the firm so that you do not say something that could jeopardize your case in any police interview. The attorneys at Papcsy Janosov Roche understand the impact that these serious charges can have on one’s life. They will explain the options and handle the investigation of the case so that your case may have the best possibility of a positive outcome.
