Possible defenses for assault in Maryland

Possible defenses for assault in Maryland

An assault in Maryland is a serious charge, even if you are only facing a misdemeanor charge. You still will face stiff fines and the possibility of jail time. If you do, it’s likely because you do not have an experienced attorney handling your case.

In Maryland, the court relies on the prosecution to present evidence that the crime of assault has occurred. This happens whether it is a local or state charge. While a defendant is considered innocent of all charges until — and only if — he or she is found guilty by a judge or jury.

At The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates, LLC, we understand how difficult this time can be. You may be facing the prospect of losing your job, rental home or even relationships with friends and family members. We will begin your defense strategy with an investigation from the beginning of your case. Witnesses will be interviewed, evidence will be collected if possible and all police and medical reports will be reviewed.

There are several defense strategies that we might use in your case. These include:

— You did not purposely or knowingly cause another person harm.

— You were defending someone else or yourself.

— You had no way to retreat.

— You have an alibi and were not around with the assault occurred.

These are just a few of the possible defenses for assault. With The Law Offices of James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates, LLC, as your legal representative, you will see that we are an aggressive advocate for our clients.
