There are many different situations which can lead to an assault charge or an arrest being made. In times of stress, people will often lose control of their emotions and say things they wish they hadn't. Similarly, outside parties can interpret the innocent actions of others as threatening. If law enforcement is introduced into this type of situation, it is possible that the police will arrest and charge you with assault before they know the full story. At the Law Office of Kevin F. Moot, we offer the aggressive defense of crimes such as assault.
Although the crime of assault is typically only charged as a second degree misdemeanor, an individual can face serious consequences. Even simple assault carries the possibility of 60 days in jail, a permanent criminal record, and a variety of other penalties.
