Lexington Assault Defense Attorneys
Hire a Proven Criminal Defense Lawyer to Fight for Your Rights
Assault is a violent crime that involves intentionally causing (or attempting to cause) physical injury to another person. This may be done with or without a weapon. In the state of Kentucky, assault can be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony. If you have been arrested for an alleged assault offense, the best thing you can do to protect your future is to hire a knowledgeable lawyer who can help you safeguard your rights and build up a strong line of defense. A skilled attorney can help you navigate the criminal justice system and take the steps that are needed for reducing your chances of conviction.
After an arrest, do not hesitate to call Bleile & Dawson at (859) 951-3112 to schedule your free consultation.
Crafting & Executing a Strong Plan of Defense
There are many different types of defenses that can be used in assault cases. If you are being charged with this crime, it may be possible to show the following:
- That you acted in self-defense
- That the actions you took do not legally qualify as assault under Kentucky law
If there are holes in the evidence or in the alleged victim's claims, it may be possible to show that the allegations are completely unfounded. Furthermore, in the state of Kentucky, it is sometimes possible to get an assault offense mitigated if it can be shown that the defendant was under "extreme emotional disturbance," as defined in subsection (1)(a) of KRS 507.020.
