Assault & Battery Charges Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri
Experienced Representation for Assault and Battery Charges
Assault and battery charges are serious business and can be some of the more difficult cases to defend. Generally, the crimes of assault and battery may each be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Likewise, the punishment level for a defendant facing an assault charge can be upgraded in some situations, such as assault against:
An elderly person
Law enforcement officers acting in their official duties
A family member, spouse, or individual involved in a dating relationship
A potential witness in a pending criminal case
Emergency service personnel
Further, depending upon the nature and extent of the “violence” alleged in a case, a guilty plea or conviction can potentially have a serious and long-term impact on your ability to hold down a job or to find housing.
