Livonia Assault and Battery Dismissed
Our client was celebrating his birthday party at a local sports bar in Livonia. A man grabbed his wife’s butt. When she told our client about the man assaulting her he was upset and confronted the man; a scuffle ensued. The problem – our client got the wrong guy and was charged with assault and battery.
Our client worked for a local city government. His position would be terminated if he plead guilty to assault and battery. Our client made the right move and called assault and batter lawyer, Aaron J. Boria.
We were able to get his charge reduced to a non-assaultive offense of disorderly conduct and have it deferred. This means that as long as he doesn’t violate probation the offense will never show up on his record, and even if he does violate only the disorderly would now up. The long and short of it is that he will not have a criminal history of any kind.

Assault and Battery in Livonia Michigan
Anytime you are charged with a criminal offense the prosecutor must prove each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. If even one element cannot be proven you must be found not guilty.
In an assault and battery case the prosecutor must prove that you had the ability to batter someone, that you intended to batter them, and that you did make contact.
The prosecution must also prove that you did not act in self-defense. If the prosecution cannot prove that you were not acting in self-defense then the case must be dismissed.
In this case our client could not assert self-defense or defense of others because the danger ended when his wife walked away. By reengaging the person (even the wrong person) his defense went away and he became the aggressor.
