Felony battery crimes are more difficult. If you are charged with aggravated battery, for instance, you are facing a significant time in prison. Other felony battery crimes include: battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and battery on a pregnant woman.
We have more than 25 years of combined experience as both prosecutors and defense attorneys. We have a history of success in representing those charged with battery crimes. The most common defense to a battery crime is self-defense. Other than that, the best way to defend a battery case is to attack the credibility of the victim. Our attorneys are seasoned and skilled at developing cross-examination by using depositions.
Our experienced trial attorneys have recently won an Aggravated Battery charge for a gentleman who was accused of hitting someone in the head with a 12 inch wrench and then punching him in the face until he was unconscious. Our client was a martial arts expert and a true gentleman. The victim was a co-worker. The prosecution wanted our client in jail. We defended the case by using a mixture of self-defense and sharp cross-examination of the alleged victim. After a long trial, the jury found our client “Not Guilty.” The victim sued our client in civil court and failed there too. You can read about this case in our Case Dismissal page (State v. H.A.)
