In some cases, all it takes is a small misunderstanding. Before you know it, you may find yourself facing assault and battery charges. Typically, assault and battery is a Class I misdemeanor. However, the penalties can also be enhanced, including the imposition of mandatory minimum jail sentences, depending on who the victim is and/or whether the victim was targeted for certain reasons. The charges can also rise to a Class VI felony under certain conditions.
A conviction will have a serious impact on your life, both professionally and personally, and may result in jail time. Therefore, if you have been accused of assault and battery, domestic or otherwise, you want an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side to help you evaluate your options to mitigate the potential consequences. Our Manassas assault and battery defense lawyers will thoroughly explore your possible defenses, discuss any mitigation options you may have and strategize to develop the best approach for you in court.
