CRIMINAL ASSAULT CASES

Assault and Battery

The words “Assault,” and “Battery,” are often used together and interchangeably. However, the terms have different meanings in the Colorado court of law. It is important to understand these differences when facing these charges.

An assault charge could possibly occur by simply brandishing a firearm. However, a weapon does not have to be involved in a situation to be charged with assault. Assault may occur if the prosecution can prove that the victim or intended victim had reason to believe their safety was at risk. If you have been charged with assault, you will need an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney like Gregory Scott Mitchell of The Mitchell Law Firm.

Battery in Colorado

In most states, the following is considered the legal definition
of battery:

“The willful or intentional act of making harmful or offensive contact with a person against that person’s will, or making contact with the victim by an object or substance put in motion by the offender.” The contact in question does not have to cause injury to be considered battery. In most jurisdictions, you can be charged with battery if the contact with a victim is offensive or inappropriate. You can also be charged with a form of verbal battery if the threat is deemed to be psychologically damaging.

Charges of battery in Colorado often fall under the category of menacing charges. Menacing charges are any threats that put a person in fear of imminent danger. Menacing charges can be a misdemeanor but have the potential to become a felony if a deadly weapon is involved. Violent crimes are taken very seriously, and if convicted the penalties can be severe.

Battery and Assault — A Complex Distinction

Battery is generally associated with assault, and they are often charged together against the accused person. In some jurisdictions, assault and battery are distinct crimes. You may be solely charged with assault; however, if you are charged with battery, then you are also allegedly guilty of assault. Simply put, battery occurs when there is physical contact. For example, brandishing a baseball bat could lead to an assault charge but the action of striking a person with the baseball bat could then lead to battery charges. Due to the complex nature of assault and battery charges, it is critical you contact a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in these types of cases. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to defend you.

If you need an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney with a professional, no-nonsense approach, call The Mitchell Law Firm at 303-333-1979 for a consultation.
