If you’ve been arrested for assault, your liberty and rights are in severe jeopardy. The severity of your charges could expose you to potential outcomes such as jail time, imprisonment in a state or federal facility, loss of your right to own a firearm, probation, court-mandated counseling or treatment, and substantial court fines.
In the case of domestic violence charges, you might even risk losing access to your home if a restraining order is filed against you by your spouse. Understanding the differences between assault and battery in Massachusetts can be vital to your case. While both are serious offenses, battery generally involves intentional and wrongful physical contact, whereas assault can occur even without physical contact, if the victim felt a genuine threat of physical harm.
