The Facts of Your Aggravated Battery Case are Important

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 there a deadly weapon used?
  • Was there great bodily harm or permanent disfigurement?
  • Are there other factors or motivations that show lack of intent?
  • Is there a lack of evidence of a conflict in the evidence?
