Simple Assault Charges Defense Lawyers, Brockton, MA
Serving All of Southeast MA including Brockton, Canton, Taunton, Bridgewater
It’s relatively rare for a person in the state of Massachusetts to be charged with simple assault; more often, anyone who injures, or threatens to injure, another individual is charged with some variety of assault and battery.
Simple assault charges usually involve an attempt or offer to do bodily harm to another person either by force or violence. The main element of the crime is satisfied when the defendant directs an overt, threatening or menacing gesture at the victim. Wielding force against another person without undue malice, intention to cause harm, or a deadly weapon could be a simple assault. Simple assault may be charged as misdemeanor, with minimal consequences for the person convicted.
However, even being charged with simple assault versus aggravated assault, you will still end up with a stain on your record, which is why it’s important to have an experienced attorney from The Noonan Defense Firm at your side, who may be able to have the charges dismissed or downgraded.
