Defending Against Assault Charges

Arrested MN’s violent crimes defense team will explore all possible defenses to the assault charge, including:

  • Self defense: You have the right to defend yourself if another person is pushing you, throwing punches or otherwise threatening you with physical harm.
  • Defense of another: Were you protecting another person when the alleged assault occurred?
  • Lack of intent: The prosecution must show that you intended to harm someone or cause fear of immediate bodily harm. We may be able to show that no such harm was intended.
  • Alibi and/or identity: Our private investigator may be able to find evidence that you were not at the scene, and that the police arrested the wrong person.
  • Degree of bodily harm: We may seek additional medical exams to verify the actual degree of bodily harm caused by the alleged assault. An accurate assessment of harm can sometimes help minimize the charges our clients face.
