Assault in Bay St. Louis, MS

It comes as a surprise to many people that you can be arrested and charged with assault even if you never lay a finger on the other person. That's because, in the eyes of the law, an assault can occur simply by making someone fear that they're in imminent danger of being harmed. If you've been accused of assaulting someone, you're potentially facing criminal prosecution for a felony or misdemeanor crime, depending on state laws and the nature of the alleged event. You could also be facing a civil lawsuit if the purported victim suffered injuries. Because of the serious consequences of an assault and battery conviction, it's important to quickly hire a criminal defense attorney who has experience representing people accused of having committed assault.
