Assault Charges in Illinois

Assault is defined as intentional conduct that could cause a person to believe they are at risk of bodily harm. This might include a menacing threat with intimidating body language, operating a vehicle in a threatening manner, or even issuing a threat while using an object that looks like a firearm.

Any of these actions, as well as many others, could result in serious penalties, which may include hefty fines, long-term imprisonment, probation, community service, and a criminal record. If you are facing a misdemeanor or felony assault charge, contact our attorney today. We will take swift and aggressive action to help you avoid the negative effects of an assault conviction.

Battery Charges in Illinois

Though often used in conjunction with an assault charge, battery is its own separate offense. This crime involves the actual physical harm of another person. This could be a stranger, a family member, or even an unborn child. Like assault, battery carries hefty penalties for those who are convicted. However, the risks of serious consequences are often greatly increased. In fact, under the wrong circumstances, a conviction could lead to lifelong imprisonment.

For example, an alleged battery involving the discharge of a firearm that resulted in bodily harm to a teacher, student, or school employee on the grounds of a school is considered a Class X felony. This is punishable by up to 60 years of imprisonment. While most cases are not this severe, our attorney handles each situation with the utmost respect and dedication. We are committed to protecting your future.
