Assault and Battery Cases against family or household members may subject the accused to enhanced penalties. Family or household members are defined under Mass. General Laws Chapter 265 section 13M as persons who:
- Are or who were married to one another;
- Have a child in common regardless of whether they have ever married or lived together; or
- Are or have been in a substantive dating or engagement relationship.
As a result, whenever facing assault and battery cases involving a domestic relationship, it is important to hire an attorney who can guide you through the process. Contact Attorney Shane W. Surrette at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
