Assault is a criminal offense that involves the threat or attempt or violence upon another person. Assault does not involve the actual hitting or act of violence against that individual, but many people charged with assault may also face charges of battery. Battery is the actual hitting, striking or touching of another person against his or her will. Juveniles charged with assault and battery can face significant penalties with the potential for a lasting impact.
My name is Catherine Cleveland, and as a Salt Lake City juvenile criminal defense lawyer, I am experienced at dealing with cases involving assault and battery. In addition, I have experience defending cases specifically in juvenile court and working with prosecuting attorneys, arresting police officers and judges in order to negotiate to have charges dismissed or the child returned to his or her parents.
