How Can an Anchorage Attorney Help You?
Although assault charges encompass a whole range of different situations and circumstances involved. When a case occurs, police are quick to intervene and prevent the situation from worsening. Assaults can take place anywhere and in a variety of ways—from bar fights to full-blown attacks. The law defines assault as intentionally causing harm or threatening to inflict harm onto another person.
For prosecutors to secure a conviction, they have the burden of proving the following:
- You acted intentionally to threaten or commit harm onto another person
- The victim had “reasonable apprehension,” or in other words, recognized that threat was being directed towards them
- The victim suffered some type of harm, including the threat of being harmed physically or receiving unwanted contact
With this in mind, the victim does not necessarily suffer from physical harm; however, the motives behind the assault must show that the act was deliberate and willfully done. As Anchorage criminal defense attorneys, we attempt to disprove the evidence. The assault may have been committed accidentally and you had no intention of causing distress to another person, as examples.
There will be avenues to explore when forming a defense. At Denali Law Group, we apply our knowledge of the laws, and use intelligent and sharp legal knowledge to bolster your argument and obtain a favorable outcome for your case.
