Dallas Assault and Battery Offenses Attorney
There is a wide range of criminal charges that fit under the heading of “assault and battery,” all of which are taken extremely seriously by law enforcement officers. While conviction of any of these charges can be severe in and of itself, penalties for conviction are often extremely serious, as assault and battery charges are frequently combined with other criminal charges, including domestic abuse, alcohol- or drug-related charges, and weapons-possession charges.
Not only can a conviction result in significant court-ordered penalties, such as probation, fines, and jail time, but those convicted on assault and battery charges may also find their lives affected in other ways even after they have completed a court-ordered sentence. The stigma that often accompanies these charges can result in damage to one’s personal and professional reputation, and can significantly limit educational and professional opportunities in the future. At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, our Dallas lawyers understand the full effects that a conviction for assault and/or battery can have on your life, and we are dedicated to protecting the rights of people like you in the face of such significant charges.
Types of Assault and Battery Cases
While people often think of assault and battery as being one criminal charge, these are actually two distinct criminal charges that carry very different penalties for conviction. Under the umbrella of assault and battery are several other criminal offenses, including:
- Assault and Battery
- Rape and Sexual Assault
- Domestic Violence
- Manslaughter and Vehicular Manslaughter
- Intoxication Manslaughter
- Negligence Homicide
- Murder / Homicide
- Felony Weapons Charges
Charges as serious as these are often prosecuted aggressively, and without an experienced attorney fighting on your side, you may find yourself facing unfair treatment and an infringement on your rights and freedoms. As such, if you are facing any of these or other assault or battery charges, take action today and contact the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter.
