What Is Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon?
Oklahoma law defines assault and battery with a dangerous weapon as an act of violence against another person using a dangerous weapon. Dangerous weapons include a multitude of objects – from guns to baseball bats to a glass beer bottle to trash cans even. Any object can be considered a dangerous weapon if it is used as such in a dangerous manner could cause harm to another. Since using a weapon creates a much higher risk for critical injuries, Oklahoma law considers assault and battery with a dangerous weapon to be a felony. A conviction on this charge carries up to 10 years in prison.
Preparing to Win Your Case
Preparing for your case as though it will go to court is how we help you have hope throughout your case at The Edge Law Firm. Our preparation of your case is critical, regardless of how we resolve the case. When we have more information than the prosecution, we can better tell your side of the story. Presenting that narrative in the best possible light for you significantly increases your odds of a good outcome. Presenting that narrative in the best possible light backed up by facts significantly increases your odds of a favorable outcome.
What Are My Chances of Winning?
Anyone facing criminal charges wants to know how likely they are to win. We have a tried-and-true formula to help you understand exactly that – our 20-60-20 rule.
Telling Your Side of the Story
A case can turn on a compelling narrative. It’s important to tell your side of the story and to tell it well, backed up by evidence. Evidence like eyewitness accounts, scientific and forensic test results, documents, and tangible objects can greatly help your case. We can use admissible evidence (evidence that’s allowed in court) or excluded evidence (evidence that’s not allowed in court) to our advantage. If certain evidence is excluded, it weakens the prosecution’s case. Evidence must be used strategically to strengthen the story of your case. Each piece of evidence must support or add something more to the narrative.
Understanding the Prosecution, Police, and Judge
Understanding the tendencies and propensities of the judge assigned to your case is critical – it could completely change our style of defense. Some judges want things to move quickly, while others take a more by-the-book approach. We will adjust our defense to each judge based on what we know about them.
