Criminal Battery Discussion – Winning Wednesday May 6, 2020
This Winning Wednesday, we discussed criminal battery and covered both the ramifications of being charged with criminal battery and the legal avenues that recipients of violence have available. Some of the options we discussed were:
Protections From Abuse
Protection From Stalking
It can be scary and intimidating when we are in situations that call for legal intervention. By understanding the range of legal avenues before you, you can make the best decisions for yourself.
At its most basic level, battery is “the unwanted physical touch of another.” Battery often occurs between people who have a close relationship. A common misconception is that battery only happens to wives – but depending on the laws that apply where you live, domestic battery impacts husbands, roommates, someone you have children with, and many other types of relationships. The complexities of these relationships and how battery is determined is precisely why having a lawyer to advocate for you is critical.
If you are being accused of battery schedule a legal consultation with us by calling 785-776-2000 or you can submit our contact form and we will get in touch with you.
If you are the recipient of battery and are in immediate threat from harm please 911. If you need legal protection, give us a call at 785-776-2000 or you can submit our contact form. We can walk you through the process of filing for a protection from abuse or from stalking. We are here to be your legal advocates.
While we normally meet in person, during the COVID-19 period we meet with you by zoom video conference call or by phone. Let’s start the process today.
