Assault and Battery Offenses

Defending your rights for assault-type crimes

Any dispute from shouted threats up to homicide may constitute an assault and battery offense.  If a weapon is involved, you will likely be charged with a felony crime.  Whatever you tell the police afterwards will be used against you.

You have important interests to protect if you are accused of an assaultive offense.  If accusations come from a member of your household, the Court could impose lengthy terms of probation.  When you are arrested, you need to know your rights and protect your freedom.

Don’t do anything until you speak to a lawyer.  You can call Tim Dinan at Dinan & Associates anytime to discuss your rights and how you can protect your freedom.

Michigan Law and its Consequences for Assault-Type Crimes

You can never predict when you may be involved in an assault.  You may be in a volatile personal relationship or must react to a hostile co-worker.  If you are a licensed concealed weapons holder, drawing your weapon in certain situations make you subject to severe sanctions.

Many assaultive offenses and arrests can lead to jail or even prison sentences.  No one will be looking out for you when you go to court unless you hire someone.

Possible penalties and collateral damage from assault-type convictions:

  • Prison or Jail
  • Seizure of Your Personal Property Including Legally Possessed Weapons
  • Loss of Employment and a Bar on Future Employment
  • A Permanent Criminal Record
  • Court Interference in Your Personal Life
  • Drug and Alcohol Testing
  • Loss of Your Concealed Weapons License
