Los Angeles Battery Attorney
Wondering how to fight a battery charge?
The act of battery involves any unwanted physical contact, and is generally violent and can cause injuries. However, due to the broad range of possibilities for battery, it is very possible for wrongful accusations to occur. In many cases, a battery charge actually involved self-defense. In this case, a battery charge would not apply as California law allows for self-defense. Another scenario where a battery charge could be dismissed is in a case that the contact was consensual. Physical contact sports such as football are an example of consent; however any contact must be within reason of the scope of activity.
One other common defense against this charge, among others, is that the physical contact was an accident. It is entirely possible for contact to be made when no violent will is intended or no will to inflict force or violence exists. The penalties for battery can be detrimental, if convicted; you could face jail time, imprisonment, and other penalties. It is vital that you seek the legal aid of an Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from The Law Office of Peter Berlin for a strong defen se of your battery charge case.
