The Facts of Your Battery Case Matter

The constitution guarantees that people be free from illegal police conduct. It is important for you to know if any of your constitutional rights have been violated. The police must have a lawful basis for investigation and arrest. Unlawful police conduct can lead to the suppression of evidence and statements obtained after the illegal police conduct. Important questions that should be answered in any misdemeanor battery case are:

  • Is there any video evidence of this incident?
  • Was the reported victim the aggressor?
  • Is this a self-defense case?
  • Is this a mutual combat case?
  • Was the alleged battery an accidental touching?
  • Was the touching incidental to other conduct?
  • Are there other factors or motivations that show lack of intent?
  • Is there a lack of evidence or a conflict in the evidence?
