The Offense of Assault and Battery
The offense of Assault and Battery is generally found under statutory section 720 ILCS 5/12-1 and is typically charged as a Class A Misdemeanor. The offense can carry jail time up to one year and a fine upwards of $2,500 but a skilled assault and battery defense lawyer will be successful in avoiding those possible consequences. Depending on the severity of the alleged harm caused or the status of the alleged victim, for example, if the alleged victim is a police officer, the State can opt to charge the offense as a felony.
Defenses to Assault and Battery
There are a number of things a seasoned assault and battery lawyer can do to get you the best results. Some of those things include:
- Keeping track that the alleged victim is following up with your case. Ignoring your case can lead to dismissal.
- Checking to see if there was legal justification for the physical contact, for example, if it was done in self defense.
- Analyzing the evidence to determine whether the State can prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
