Defending Assault and Battery Charges in NY

Some of the best methods of defending against criminal charges of assault and battery include:

  • Basic self-defense: Individuals have an unquestionable right to defend themselves against unprovoked attacks from others
  • Professional duty: Those whose professional roles permit the use of dangerous or deadly force will be afforded an opportunity to explain why they did so during the situation at issue.
  • Defense of property: There are circumstances in which the law permits the use of force to guard the home against intruders.

Bolstered by our years of experience providing clients with winning felony defense strategies, we have what it takes to put together best defense possible for virtually any case.

Potential Consequences of Assault and Battery Convictions

The charges and potential penalties in assault and battery cases are highly dependent on factors such as the seriousness of the harm done and the type of individual you stand accused of attacking. Second-degree felony assault convictions carry penalties ranging from two to seven years’ imprisonment. Even a misdemeanor third degree assault conviction can result in a full year in prison. A sexual assault-related Class B Felony conviction can bring imprisonment upwards of 25 years. Clearly, the ramifications of these charges can be devastating, and therefore a serious defense is absolutely essential.
