There Are Many Types Of Assault
Whether you were in a bar fight or have been accused of spousal abuse, I help people charged with both domestic assault and other assault charges. Since assault is a crime against a person, it is considered a crime of violence. If you are charged with domestic assault or assault and battery, you may be subject to a restraining order that prohibits you from interacting with the alleged victim. It is important that you understand the parameters of the restraining order and do not violate the order, as punishments for violating restraining orders may be as severe as those for the underlying charge.
You want to speak with an attorney before appearing in court. Domestic violence is an enhanceable offense in Minnesota, which means if you plead guilty and you have prior or future domestic assault charges, it could turn into a more serious charge resulting in jail time. If convicted of assault, you will most likely lose your right to possess firearms for the remainder of your life.
