Maybe an argument became too heated or someone jumped you and you had to defend yourself. No matter how you found yourself facing assault charges, what matters now is how you respond.
The Evidence You Need May Be Disappearing
People often believe that they have time to decide whether or not they will hire an attorney to defend them against assault charges. The fact is that extremely valuable evidence may be disappearing as you wait to make that decision. Surveillance camera footage may be recorded over. Witnesses may be harder to locate. Only by acting sooner rather than later do you give yourself the best opportunity to fully defend yourself against assault charges.
There May Be Consequences You Will Find Very Difficult To Live With
Jail, fines and probation are difficult consequences to face. However, there can also be other types of possible consequences which you were not even aware of such as:
- Alcohol treatment
- Anger management
- Inability to own a firearm
If you want to ensure that you are able to secure the best possible outcome to your situation, secure the representation of an attorney who can defend you against assault charges.
