In the court system, the term “assault” refers to the threat of physical violence, whereas the term “battery” refers to actual physical violence.
It is also possible to be charged with attempted assault and/ or battery or conspiracy to commit these crimes. Domestic violence often also takes the shape of assault or battery. “Domestic” in this sense simply means that the action was taken against someone you live with or someone related to you.
Some criminal assault cases are dismissed based on an “accord and satisfaction,” which usually involves the criminal defendant paying the victim a sum of money outside of the criminal proceedings—possibly, but not necessarily, as part of a related civil lawsuit. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can advise you whether this or other defenses apply to your case.
Since an assault conviction carries such serious consequences, our firm believes there is no time to waste in investigating and defending your case. The sooner you call our Fredericksburg criminal defense attorney, the sooner we can put his decades of experience to work for you.
