Allen Assault & Battery Defense Lawyer

Have You Been Accused of a Crime in Texas?

While both assault and battery are considered to be violent crimes, they are not the same thing. Assault can be alleged when one individual attempts to cause injury or harm to another person or make threats in order to cause physical harm. Battery is charged when the individual actually uses physical force and instigates harm. The important distinction is whether or not physical contact has actually occurred. Both carry the potential for serious penalties. If you or a loved one have been charged with assault and battery, contact the Allen criminal defense attorney at The Law Office of Al Rowland, PLLC. We utilize our experience and knowledge to obtain favorable outcomes on your behalf.

Penalties for Assault & Battery

Since these crimes are so similar to one another, they can oftentimes be accused together. Our seasoned criminal defense attorney examines the details of your case to craft the right defense.

We can help prove the following in an assault and battery case:

  • Self-defense against a real threat of harm
  • Defense of another person from real threat of harm
  • Defense against personal property being illegally withheld
  • Consent was granted to submit to a particular act

Assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the case, bringing fines and jail time. Assault and battery are known as intentional torts, meaning that even after a criminal case has been completed, you may be facing additional action in civil court for financial compensation.
