Defending Against Assault Charges

Two main defenses against an assault charge exist: mistaken identity and self-defense. The police may have arrested a suspect due to confusion with the subject’s description or other faults with the evidence in play. In Michigan, simple assault stated in MCL 750.81

"A person who assaults or assaults and batters an individual, if no other punishment is prescribed by law, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 93 days or a fine of not more than $500.00, or both."

Michigan Aggravated Assault, which is defined under MCL 750.81a(1)

A Michigan Simple Assault becomes an Aggravated Assault when the victim suffers an injury. The Prosecution will usually have to prove this injury with medical records or proof of medical treatment.  

What’s the Difference Between Aggravated Assault and Felonious Assault in Michigan?

Felonious assault and aggravated assault may look like similar crimes, but they are very different criminal penalties. Felonious assault is a felony, whereas aggravated assault is considered a serious misdemeanor. Felonies are more serious than misdemeanors because they involve higher fines, longer periods of incarceration, and more collateral consequences such as limits on your second amendment right to own firearms.Although aggravated assault is a misdemeanor charge in Michigan, police and prosecutors will look for ways to intensify your charges and bring about a felony criminal conviction. 

Assault Defenses 

There are many defenses to assault and battery charges in Michigan. Possible defenses to an assault and battery charge include:

Self defense
Defense of others
Lack of intent, such as an accident or mistake
Defense of property
​Consent. It may sound strange, but if the alleged victim consents to have the defendant commit an act of assault or battery, he or she has no legal claim to make an assault or battery charge.

If you have been charged with assault and battery, get an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. Too many people wait after being charged with assault and battery and end up having to suffer through more serious consequences than they would have had they simply contacted an attorney early on.
