Indianapolis Attorney Battery Charges

Indianapolis criminal defense attorney, Bryan L. Cook, is dedicated to protecting your rights. If you or someone you know has been charged and arrested for battery, Bryan Cook can help you.

“Assault” is defined as the threat of bodily harm together with an apparent and present ability to cause harm. “Battery” is different from assault in that it involves actual physical contact, and not merely the threat. You may be charged with this offense if you intentionally caused physical harm to someone, or if someone has simply accused you of doing so. You can even be charged with battery if someone accuses you of touching them without their consent. Battery can be a punch to the face or a poke in the chest. You can be charged with battery for pushing someone off your property, even if they were harassing you.

Battery laws in the State of Indiana are very complex and obviously each case is different. Clearly there is a wide range of charges that fall under the heading of “battery,” and within each there are many factors that could effect the outcome of your case. The slightest detail in your particular situation, or in the way your arrest might have been handled, can mean the difference between a misdemeanor with fines, being convicted of a felony and a lengthy prison sentence, or having your case dismissed altogether. Knowing exactly what a charge of battery can mean to you and your future is no simple matter. You need the expertise of a seasoned professional who can help you understand the laws and charges against you. You also need someone who focuses on battery cases and can effectively defend you against these charges in court.

Criminal defense attorney, Bryan L. Cook, has over 18 years experience representing clients accused of battery offenses. He handles cases from simple misdemeanors to domestic battery, injury to a police officer, and major aggravated felonies. Don’t put yourself at risk by trying to represent yourself in court. People often misrepresent the truth under oath. You may have been in a situation where you were threatened and unduly provoked. You may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time and forced into a conflict you had no wish to be involved with. You may have been only protecting yourself or someone you love. Even if you intentionally caused bodily harm to someone else or have a prior conviction, don’t assume the situation is hopeless. Many times the law allows you to “stand your ground” and/or use reasonable force (self defense) to defend yourself or another person.
