Assault and battery is committed when there is an intentional touching no matter how slight that it is considered harmful or offensive. A harmful physical touching is one that has the potential of creating physical harm. An offensive touching is one that would be considered offensive to a reasonable person.

 

Assault and battery can also be committed in a reckless manner. Reckless assault and battery requires physical harm to another person caused by wanton or reckless conduct. Reckless conduct is more than mere negligence it is determined by whether a reasonable person would have realized that the conduct would result in physical harm.

 

There are different ways that the Commonwealth can charge assault and battery depending on the circumstances:

  • assault and battery with a dangerous weapon
  • domestic assault and battery
  • indecent assault and battery
  • assault and battery on an elderly or disabled person
  • assault and battery on a police officer or public servant
  • aggravated assault and battery

 

If you have been charged with any of the above crimes feel free to call to receive a free consultation regarding your case.

 

If you are being investigated for assault and battery call Boston criminal attorney Frank Fernandez for a free confidential consultation regarding your case. If you are facing charges of assault and battery it is important to retain an experienced attorney familiar with defending assault charges. Domestic assault and battery charges are common in the state of Massachusetts, if charged with domestic violence do not make any statements to the police without consulting an attorney first.

 

Assault and battery charges can be considered more serious or face a harsher penalty if certain elements are met. If a weapon is used or even kicking someone with a shoe on, could be considered assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. If the person assaulted is a family member or a partner then this could be considered domestic assault and battery which now carries even more of a penalty. Domestic assault and battery now requires completion of an extensive certified batterers program. This program requires 80 hours of intervention counseling in both a group and individual setting. The program is usually in 2 hour sessions once a week for 40 consecutive weeks.. Another form of assault and battery is Aggravated assault and battery and relates to the extent of the injury caused. If someone is seriously injured a person could be charged with assault and battery causing aggravated injury.

 

Other forms of assault and battery are on the elderly, someone over 60, on a disabled person, police officer, or ambulance personnel while performing their duty. All these are factors which can enhance the penalty or level of the charge and an assault and battery case.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
