Why should you hire an attorney for an assault ticket?
If you have received an assault citation and are summoned to appear in a municipal court or justice of the peace court, then you have been charged with “simple” assault. Do not let the word “simple” fool you; these cases are very serious. Not only can these charges be used to enhance a later charge to a much higher class, but also an assault charge on your record can affect how you are perceived in future employment, licensing, or schooling. Penalties for these tickets include steep fines, community service, and anger management classes.
- Assault charges can be filed as a result of simple bar fights or domestic disputes.
- These assault charges can have devastating consequences to your future.
