Protect Your Future By Putting Assault Charges In The Past
One wrong word or move can send a tense situation spiraling out of control. A bar fight, an altercation in a parking lot, or blows traded at a football game can turn into a legal nightmare. Alcohol is often a factor, and neither the people involved nor the witnesses may clearly know what started the fight.
None of that matters once the police get involved. Police officers are concerned with shutting down the situation. To do that, they will arrest and charge anyone involved – even if you were just defending yourself.
A conviction can alter your future forever. If you are a student, you could lose your financial aid, scholarships and your right to student housing. If you are just starting out, it could make it difficult to find a job or derail your chosen career. If you are already employed, your job can be in danger.
Talk To Us, Not The Police
You have the right to remain silent. Use it. Talking to the police will not help you. They are not interested in helping you; they are only listening to your side of the story to get evidence against you. Do not make their jobs easy for them.
A violent criminal charge like assault can have permanent consequences on your life, even if it is only a misdemeanor. Your personal and professional life can suffer tremendously. Get legal help immediately from a criminal lawyer.
