Years of Criminal Defense Experience

Over the years, Campbell Whitten has provided legal counsel to countless individuals facing all types of charges for violent crimes, such as assault and battery. We realize the severity of these type of charges and are well-aware of the impact a conviction will have on our client. The type of assault committed, extent of injury caused and intent will all play a role in whether you could be facing misdemeanor or felony charges.

Assault and battery on their own are both misdemeanor charges punishable by up to 6 months in jail, expensive fines, mandatory attendance in anger management classes, probation, community service and more. In cases of assault with a deadly weapon or aggravated assault, the prosecution has the option to file charges as either a misdemeanor or felony. A felony conviction could lead to a lengthy prison sentence, fines, victim restitution and the loss of your right to bear arms.
