Assault investigations and charges have special considerations. In some cases, the child charged with assault was provoked, or was the target of bullying, or was exercising self-defense. Gathering background information and providing this information to the investigating officer and the prosecutor can mitigate the outcome of your child’s case. Assault charges often result in No-Contact Orders that can restrict your child’s ability to participate in activities such as sports. Acting early in hiring an attorney to preserve evidence can positively affect the outcome of your child’s case.
