Assault and Battery.jpg

Charges of Assault and Battery in Aurora, Colorado require immediate attention. If you've been charged, there are several things you should know that will help your defense. Because the definitions associated with these crimes are different in cities throughout the Front Range, it is important that you hire the best Aurora Assault and Battery Defense Lawyer for your unique case.

Aurora Attorney Definition of Assault

Aurora, Colorado's Code of Ordinances references offenses against a person in Article II. The definition of Assault in Sec. 94-36 is:

"An assault is an attempt coupled with a present ability to commit a battery, as defined in section 94-37, upon the person of another, and it shall be unlawful for any person to commit an assault in the city.

Essentially, assault in Aurora can occur if an individual tries to physically harm another person. In other cities on the Front Range, attempting to place someone in fear of injury is included in the assault definition.

Definition of Battery - Aurora Defense Lawyer

While coupled with a charge of Assault, Battery does include its own factors when looking at Aurora's Code of Ordinances. Article II, Sec. 94-37 defines Battery as:

"Battery is the knowing or reckless use of force or violence upon the person of another. Every battery shall be deemed to include a violation of assault, as defined in section 94-36. It shall be unlawful to commit a battery in the city."

With a closer look, keep in mind that in Aurora, no injury of another is required to commit Battery. Simply the use of force or violence can be perceived as Battery. These definitions are key to forming a defense on your behalf and fighting your charges.
