Assault And Battery

Charges of assault and battery can seriously jeopardize your future, as convictions can lead to years of imprisonment, a criminal record and other long-term, severely negative consequences. Whether there was an intent to cause injury will be a key component of the criminal case, and having a skilled Denver criminal defense attorney arguing against the charges will make the significant difference in the outcome of the charges.

Types Of Assault And Battery Charges And Penalties

The nature of possible penalties the accused can face in the event of a conviction will depend on the degree of the charges against him, the level of injury caused and whether the accused has a criminal record. The following outlines the range of possible assault and battery charges that can be filed in these cases:

  • First-degree assault and battery charges, the most serious level of these charges, are a class 3 felony and can involve prison sentences of 10 to 32 years. Typically, these charges are filed when a deadly weapon is used with an intent to cause injury to another person and/or there is an intent to injure a working law enforcement official.
  • Second-degree assault and battery charges, a class 4 felony, can carry a prison sentence of five to 16 years.
  • Third-degree assault and battery charges, which are generally misdemeanor charges, can send convicts to prison for as many as two years.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
