Battery charges are often the result of a conflict that got out of hand. A disagreement between friends or family members is one potential scenario that could lead to someone being charged with battery.
No matter what situation led to you being charged with battery, you need to take the defense of your rights very seriously. The police, the prosecutors and the court are going to take the charges very seriously, and you need an experienced attorney by your side to ensure that your rights are protected at all stages of the process.
What You Need To Know About Criminal Battery
Battery is knowingly or intentionally causing someone else physical harm through any means. It can also be something as minor as making physical contact that is insulting or provocative. Battery charges can apply to a wide range of circumstances. If you have found yourself facing battery charges, take action to defend yourself by securing the representation of a skilled attorney immediately.
How do Assault Charges Appear with Battery?
