Virginia Takes Assault Crimes Seriously

Depending on the details of your case, you could face either misdemeanor or felony charges for assault or battery. The state generally charges accused individuals with felonies when the alleged assaults occurred in correlation with domestic violence, hate crimes or other specific circumstances.

In the state of Virginia, the courts take assault crimes seriously, especially felony assaults. Prosecutors will be working diligently to prove the charges against you, so you need a criminal defense attorney who will work even harder.
