Many battery (including domestic battery) allegations involve two or more people who tell different versions to the police. In our firm, we call this a “he said, she said” case. Often, both parties may be at fault, but the better fighter is the one that gets charged with a crime. Sometimes a person was only defending themselves. In Indiana, self-defense is a recognized legal concept. Sometimes, accusers just flat out lie about what happened but can be very convincing to prosecutors and police.
The best way to combat a battery allegation is to hire lawyers who have a reputation for going to trial. It doesn’t hurt if they also win those trials. Our firm has handled hundreds, if not thousands, of cases involving a client accused of battery and won jury trials even with witnesses who claim that they saw the battery take place. If the prosecutor doesn’t believe that your attorney will take the case to trial, then you probably won’t get the outcome you deserve, whether that is a dismissal or a great plea. When defending someone accused of battery, we will take depositions of the accuser and other witnesses, we will scour Facebook and other social media posts and even just knock on doors looking for witnesses to help the case. There are a multitude of ways to win a battery case and we would cater the defense to your specific set of facts. However, none of that matters if your lawyer is not willing to go to trial. We are and prosecutors know it.
