Assault and Battery

The most common misconception people have about assault and battery cases is that the victim has the authority to drop charges. This is not the case, even if it is a close friend or family. Once an incident has been reported and an arrest has been made, only the State, not the alleged victim, decides whether charges are dismissed or reduced. The complainant’s wishes may or may not be taken into consideration. There are laws in Arkansas that allow the State, in some cases, to prove their case without the victim even present at the trial. When an assault or battery case has been charged, you need an attorney that is experienced and has tried cases like yours before.
