Misdemeanor and Felony
Many criminal assault and battery charges result from fights in bars, parking lots, and other public places. When police are called to a fight, one of the parties is usually arrested and taken to jail. The person charged may or may not have been the person who started the fight.
If you have been charged with assault, you need to contact a lawyer whether or not you are innocent or guilty of the charge. Many people who face assault charges focus on the immediate consequences of the charges, like the fine and jail time. However, there are also long-term consequences that are even more serious. You could end up with a permanent criminal record that will affect your reputation, your career, and even your ability to own a firearm or go hunting. You also may face a civil lawsuit filed by the victim.
