What Is Considered Assault?
Assault is any kind of unwanted touching. Even something as simple as bumping into someone can be an assault. We represent clients in a wide range of assault matters, including assault charges involving altercations in schools.
Our firm also handles aggravated assault cases. There are a number of factors that can elevate an assault charge to aggravated assault, including:
- The involvement of weapons
- The assault resulting in physical harm to the victim
- A child or elderly victim.
Do Not Talk to Anyone Except Your Lawyer About Your Case
One of the most important things that we tell people facing assault charges is to never talk to anyone about your case. This includes the family members and anyone who might be connected to the victim. Assault very rarely arises from altercations between strangers. In most cases, the accused and the victim have some kind of connection through friends or family members. When people talk about the case, other family members can relay the message and it could come back to harm you in your case.
It is especially important to avoid talking about your case through Facebook, Twitter, texting or other telecommunications that can store your comments to be used against you in your trial.
