Assault and battery charges in Virginia come in a variety of forms, but nearly all are serious. These charges typically stem from the unlawful touching of another individual, or even just the threat of unlawful touching. Typical charges include:
· Simple Assault
· Assault and Battery
· Assault on A Family Member
The above charges are misdemeanors punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2500. More serious versions of Assault Charges can include:
· Unlawful Wounding
· Malicious Wounding
· Assault on Law Enforcement
The penalty for these charges can vary from 5 to 20 years imprisonment depending on the charge.
There possibly are multiple defenses for your charge[s]. We need to first evaluate the facts and circumstances surrounding your charge[s] and then discuss strategies for resolution. The facts of the case matter, and if the facts of your case do not meet the statutory requirements for your charge[s], your case may be dismissed.
Other possible defenses or resolutions that may help you win your case or avoid jail time include:
· Mutual combat
