Assaults

An assault charge in Philadelphia, Bucks County and Montgomery County in Pennsylvania can have very serious consequences, including jail time. Pennsylvania assault laws are complicated and any error in how you defend yourself could land you in jail or lead to other serious penalties and punishment.

Types of Assault Charges

Often people are charged with assault after getting in a fight. In many instances, the other person files the assault charge, regardless of who may have thrown the first punch. Any punch or brawl, or just threatening someone with physical harm can lead to an assault charge. If someone files assault charges against you, and you are arrested, you will require an attorney to help explain what happened, and why the charges should be dropped.
