for All Your Criminal Defense Needs
Whether you have been charged with a simple assault, aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon, or assault family violence you should consult with an attorney immediately. People charged with an assault will often be served with an Emergency Protective Order, or EPO, that prohibits them from going to certain locations, contacting certain people, or going within a specified distance of those people.
A violation of this protective order is a separate criminal offense and can occur with as little as a text message. The protective order can prevent a person accused of assault from returning to their own home. If you or someone you know has been arrested for assault, an immediate consult with an attorney can greatly help to understand what conduct is allowed or prohibited immediately following an arrest for assault.
As with other crimes, the ramifications of an Assault conviction can stick with you for life. If you or someone you know is charged with assault it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to help protect your record. The way in which your case is resolved will also affect your right to an expunction or ability to seal your record. You cannot expunge a Deferred Adjudication.
