Assault - Peace Disturbance
Assault and Peace Disturbance charges typically arise when there are disagreements between and among people who are acquainted with one another, i.e. husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, neighbor v. neighbor, etc. The police are called and they sort out the disturbance by issuing citations to one or more persons.
It's always important for a defense attorney to review the police report and witness statements, because there are always two sides to every story. If the facts support the client's version of events, it is possible to obtain a dismissal or acquittal at trial.
If the facts do not favor the defendant, and if it it appears that there will be no risk to victims and no likelihood of a re-occurrence of violent behavior, the Court may l resolve the case by placing the defendant on probation and by requiring some sort of counseling or anger management program.
