Facing battery charges can be overwhelming. The different degrees of charges are complex and worded confusingly, and the penalties for one degree versus another can be much more severe. An experienced lawyer will help make sense of the charges you’re facing and advise you on the strongest defense.
There are five degrees of battery charges ranging from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class H felony, the most severe charge. Cases become more complicated if the victim was an unborn child or a specific type of person like a juror or public officer. Whatever charges you’re facing, remember that the team at Tracey Wood & Associates believes no case is a lost cause. They will fight hard against your charges in court. Some possible defenses include:
Case: Client was charged with felony battery and strangulation. We identified mistakes in the witness’ statement and uncovered new evidence that resulted in the case being dismissed.
Result: Charges DISMISSED
Charge: Client was charged with criminal battery, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. We fought to have these charges reduced to non-criminal ordinance violations.
Result: Charges REDUCED to non-criminal violations
The attorneys at Tracey Wood & Associates want you to have hope. No case is unwinnable. They are experienced in defending battery cases and will work tirelessly to investigate all aspects of your case.
