Assault & Battery is a crime that can be easily misconstrued by law enforcement if a proper investigation is not conducted.  There could very well be mitigating circumstances that need to be discovered.  Because it is considered a violent crime and normally involves force, threats and even violence, law enforcement will want to press for a conviction.  Conviction of such a crime can lead to prison sentences, fines, community service and even restitution for any property damage or other personal damages done to another.  The sentence given will depend on the severity of the charges and conviction, as well as whether the person has a prior record.  At Marks & Brooklier, we will conduct our own investigation into the matter, ensuring you have the best defense possible to fight the charges.  Don't let yourself be caught up in the system, our proficient legal staff will be strong advocates on your behalf.
