Champaign Aggravated Battery Defense Lawyer

Simple battery is when you make physical contact with another person to injure, insult or provoke him or her. Aggravated battery is accompanied by any of the following factors:

  • Using a deadly weapon
  • In a public place
  • While wearing a hood
  • Against a class of people
  • Against a law enforcement official

Illinois Assault Crimes Attorney

One problem with a charge of aggravated battery is that pleading guilty to the criminal charge opens you to civil suits, which can be enormously expensive. Before you confess to the police, talk to an experienced criminal lawyer. It is much better to have the case dismissed or to successfully defend yourself in court than to be ruined in a civil lawsuit.

Thoughtful, Effective Criminal Defense Strategies

Numerous defenses may apply to your case. You may show that your actions were in self-defense. You may reduce the case to two unresolvable versions of what transpired. You may discredit the other party in the case, casting doubt on his or her account or reputation. You may create doubt in the judge's or jury members' minds that the violent act ever occurred.

Are you charged with harming another person? Though the charge is serious, you still have legal options. To learn what they are, contact Champaign aggravated battery defense attorney Harvey C. Welch at 217-903-2452.
