Assault on a Female is a Class A1 Misdemeanor. It is punishable by a statutory maximum of 150 days in jail. If convicted, you can receive a sentence of imprisonment even if you have never been convicted of anything. In addition, those convicted of assault on a female can also be fined, required to take classes and undergo psychological evaluations.
However, just because you have been charged does not mean you are guilty of anything. You have rights! In order to convict, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that are (1) at least 18 years old, (2) a male, and that you (3) committed an assault (4) on a female. In addition, you may be able to suppress illegally obtained evidence or negotiate with the District Attorney’s Office based on your good character and prior achievements. It is vitally important that you immediately consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Criminal Defense requires extensive knowledge of Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, the Rules of Evidence, and Criminal Procedure. It also requires familiarity with the other parties involved including the judges, prosecutors and law enforcement officers. How you deal with these laws and these people will likely determine whether you will be convicted and (if convicted) the nature and extent of your punishment.
