Assault on a Female
Have you been charged with assaulting a female?
If you have been accused of assault on a female, you must speak with a
Raleigh criminal defense attorney immediately to learn what you can do
to protect yourself against a conviction. Any statements that you make
to law enforcement officers, prosecutors, or the alleged victim may provide
evidence against you, which can prejudice the case and make it difficult
to resolve the charges. The courts in Raleigh take any form of assault
seriously, but when you stand before the judge on
charges of assault on a female, your case requires skilled representation. Charges for assault
on a female can easily have a major negative impact on every aspect of
your life, and it is important to take swift legal action.
Assault on a female is an A1 misdemeanor, the highest form of misdemeanor
in North Carolina. After undergoing an automatic 48 hour holding period
in jail, you may be kept in jail for up to 150 days if you are found guilty.
Following your release, you may have difficulty in the years to come when
you try to find work, due to the fact that employers are often reluctant
to hire anyone with assault on their criminal record. Even if the alleged
victim has decided not to press charges, the state began its prosecution
of the case the moment of your arrest; if you don't work now to prevent
a conviction, you may lose your chance to walk away with a clean criminal record.
