Types of assault and battery charges

Assault and battery are two separate charges under Wisconsin law & Minnesota law, but they are often paired together. Assault is the threat of committing violence, while battery is the actual carrying out of the violence. Your criminal defense attorney is prepared to handle charges resulting from a variety of circumstances, ranging from bar fights to domestic abuse. Both assault and battery charges can come in different forms, such as:

Aggravated assault

Aggravated assault occurs when a person does something, by word or act, to put another person in fear of imminent danger, while also displaying a deadly weapon. A deadly weapon is any weapon that could cause death, including guns and knives. A deadly weapon can also be an object that when used for an unlawful purpose can cause death.

Domestic violence

Domestic abuse often involves assault and battery charges.  All allegations of domestic violence are thoroughly investigated and prosecuted. So if you are charged with this, it is important to have an experienced domestic violence attorney on your side.

Sexual assault

Sexual assault is any sexual contact with another person without consent. Sexual contact alone results in lesser penalties than a sexual assault that involves intercourse, but any type of sexual assault is serious.

Violent crimes can range from misdemeanor assault offenses to more serious felony charges of battery and homicide, but any conviction of a violent offense can lead to significant consequences for the offender. Even a simple bar fight can have far-reaching implications for your future and needs to be dealt with in a serious manner.

Being arrested for a crime can be one of the most frightening experiences of a person's life. Discuss your assault charged and/or violent crime charges with an attorney who can help minimize the impact on your life by working for reduced or dismissed charges.

If You Are Arrested

After you have been arrested and charged with a violent crime, it is important to seek out experienced counsel to advocate for your rights and best interests. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will look at every possible defense to help you avoid a conviction and the serious penalties that may come with a conviction. Do not speak with law enforcement officials about your situation until you have spoken with an experience criminal defense attorney.
