When you charged with an assault or battery the state attorneys must prove their case…and a pro can make that very, very difficult.


In a simple assault case the state must prove the victim reasonably believed he or she was in immediate fear of being physically harmed. If proven guilty, this is a misdemeanor with possible fines and jail time.

In an aggravated assault, the assault usually happens with a deadly weapon of some sort, with a mask or during a felony. If proven guilty, this felony comes with potential fines and significant jail time.


The state must prove you illegally touched the victim where it was not likely to cause serious bodily harm or injury. If proven guilty, this misdemeanor carries a possibility of a fine and jail time.

An aggravated battery occurs when a deadly weapon is used and permanent gross bodily harm or death was inflicted on the victim. It is a felony – and a conviction carries potential fines and significant jail time. I recommend you contact me so I can defend you against these serious charges at (505) 750-8442.
