Are You Looking at Felony Assault Charges?
“Unwanted touching” or “touching without consent” are the basis of physical assault or criminal assault. Assault and battery law, in Alberta, allows room for an accused person to avoid punishment or get a lesser sentence if self-defense is invoked by their defense. The self-defense argument is very technical and has been successfully used not only in simple assault cases, but also in murder, , , or other .
An aggravated assault charge can include fines, court-ordered treatment programs, as well as prison sentences, if you are convicted. Having a dedicated, focused team of criminal assault lawyers who understand how to properly prepare your assault case for trial is critical. Reduce the impact of your assault charge penalties on your future, call our committed criminal lawyers in Calgary – 1-587-315-0666.
Avoid a Criminal Record
In Alberta, assault laws don’t have specific criminal statutes dedicated to domestic assaults, also known as spousal assaults. However, domestic assault charges are prosecuted under the same assault laws as a simple assault charge or assault causing bodily harm.
As there is usually a disagreement on the nature of events that led up to the altercation, domesti. assault and battery cases usually involve “he said/she said.” The criminal defense team at Greg Dunn’s law office are able to build your case, in attempts to avoid more serious penalties, by working with the prosecution to drop the assault charges in exchange for a recognizance or “810 peace bond” restraining order.
