Assault and Battery Cases may be presented to a jury under two separate theories. The first theory involves an intentional assault and battery, and the second involves reckless conduct. To prove a reckless assault and battery case, the Commonwealth must present evidence that:
- The defendant engaged in actions which caused bodily injury to an alleged victim; &
- The defendant’s actions amounted to reckless conduct, which is conduct that is greater than negligence.
For those facing assault and battery cases, it is important to retain an attorney who has handled hundreds of such charges. Contact Attorney Shane W. Surrette at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
