Assault Charges

Assault is a crime that is defined differently from state to state. In South Carolina, assault is defined as an attempt or threat to inflict injury upon another person or an intentional physical act that creates a reasonable fear of imminent injury in another. An assault can be committed with a weapon or without. Assault with a deadly weapon is a more serious offense and may be charged as a felony or misdemeanor. Assault charges can arise out of disagreements and fights, but they can also arise out of a misunderstanding. An assault charge can be brought against you if you threaten another person, if you fight with another person, or if you get into an argument with another person that gets out of hand.

Defense Strategies

If you are facing charges for a violent crime, it is important that you act quickly to secure your legal rights. An experienced attorney can help you understand the charges against you and build a strong defense strategy.

Our attorney can help you by challenging the sufficiency of the evidence against you, raising defenses based on the facts of your case, and arguing for a less severe charge, lesser included offense, or other favorable resolution. For example, if you are charged with battery, our attorney could argue that you were acting in self-defense. If you are charged with stalking, our attorney could argue that you had a reasonable fear for your safety. If you are facing charges for a violent crime, it is important that you act quickly to secure your legal rights. An experienced attorney can help you understand the charges against you and build a strong defense strategy.
