In Pennsylvania, simple assault is a misdemeanor crime. Although unlikely, the sentence for simple assault can reach up to 5 years in jail or prison.
Unfortunately, simple assault charges are often the result of police misunderstandings. In many cases a person who was not even responsible for starting the fight is charged with the assault. Since police often arrive at a fight after it has already started or ended, angry spouses, girlfriends, or prejudiced onlookers can wrongly convince police to arrest you, even though you were not at fault.
However, as with most criminal charges, the best defense can only be arrived at after careful consideration of all the details of the case with your attorney.
As a criminal defense law firm, We work diligently to find evidence that will support our client's innocence and establish a reasonable doubt that they are guilty of assault. As your defense attorney, we meticulously review police reports and eyewitness statements. We conduct own witness interviews and track down information that can help in obtaining a favorable outcome.
