Defending Those Accused Of Domestic Violence And Battery In Southern Indiana

Battery is an intentional physical contact with a person without his or her consent that results in bodily harm. Regardless of the circumstances battery charges should be taken seriously as they can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. These charges carry penalties that can land you in jail, compromise employment opportunities, and prohibit you from owning a firearm.

Some acts that constitute Battery include:

  • Hitting and Shoving
  • Strangulation
  • Scratching
  • Spitting
  • Threatening Behavior

Your battery charge may have come about from a heated argument that turned physical. You may have not been the aggressor and your involvement could have possibly been an act of self defense. Many battery charges result from getting involved in a fight and both parties are charged. If you only acted in self defense, then you need and experienced attorney to help protect yourself from the risk of ending up with a criminal record.

However, if you made a mistake you now regret or if your actions were taken out of context by police, we can help. If you have been accused of battery or abuse, our attorneys will review the evidence and protect your rights and interests.

Batteries against certain people are also punished more severely if they occur while the person is performing official duties or working. Protected employees include law enforcement officers, corrections officers, parole and probation officers and firefighters.

Some Battery charges can result in more serious penalties. If you have been charged with Aggravated Battery or Sexual Battery you need a skilled attorney to defend yourself and protect your rights.
