How to Handle an Assault or Battery Charge
If you’re charged with assault or battery, there are several steps you can take to help us provide focused defense solutions.
- Write the facts down. As soon as possible after the incident, write down everything you can remember about what happened and why. Your memory may not be as reliable later, especially with the stress of the criminal charge.
- Don’t talk about it. Be sure to keep the incident between you and your lawyer. Don’t discuss the charge with anyone and don’t admit guilt or fault. No one needs to know your business, and unfortunately, anything you say can be used against you in court.
