Military Defense Lawyer for Assault and Battery Charges
Facing criminal charges in the military?
Assault is normally defined as an attempt or threat to cause harm to someone.
Battery is the actual physical violence committed on someone. The charge
of "assault and battery" is the common term when someone assaults
someone and causes them harm. A charge of assault and battery in the military
can carry serious consequences, resulting in an Article 32 investigation
leading to a general courts martial.
If the type of assault was domestic violence, the serviceman charged can
tend to be pre-judged as guilty due to the type of crime it is. When facing
this type of a charge, you do not want to risk your freedom and future
by relying on an inexperienced military appointed attorney. Due to their
general inexperience, this could result in severe penalties, jail time
and a dishonorable discharge should you be convicted.
Retaining a private, civilian,
military criminal defense lawyer who has years of experience in military law is essential in presenting
a strong defense on your behalf. Accordingly, you should not wait to work
with an attorney from Military Justice International as soon as possible.
