Assault Charge in Southern Minnesota

Common Assault Scenarios

Although every case is a little different, there are a few scenarios in which assault situations commonly arise:

Alcohol-Related Assault Most people are aware and self-controlled enough when sober to avoid physical confrontations. Most of us, however, become much more courageous and much less aware after consuming too much alcohol or other drugs. This is why assault charges frequently arise in bars and parties, and alcohol is involved in most assault crimes.

College |  We help students — and their parents — who have been charged with assault charges. Common scenarios for college assault crimes include fifth-degree misdemeanor, domestic, fights at house parties, sporting events, date rape and other related sexual assault charges.

Domestic Assault Family law and criminal law converge on domestic violence charges. Husbands and wives frequently get into arguments that escalate into physical violence, especially when alcohol or drugs are involved.  Minnesota handles domestic violence claims very seriously and you will absolutely want to know your rights and your options if you or a loved one are charged with domestic assault.

Regardless of the situation in which your assault charge occurred, we can help you.
