Your Attorney Will Investigate Your Denver Assault Case to Uncover the Facts

When police officers arrive on the scene of an assault, all too often, the person who won the fight is the one who gets stuck with the assault charge. In all fairness to the officers, let’s put ourselves in their shoes—they are responding to a bloody, chaotic scene where remaining witnesses are most likely friends and associates of the person who is still at the scene, which is usually the one who is the most injured. These witnesses provide their version of the events as they perceive them, and in this light, officers will often hear a heavily biased account of what really happened.

If the person who prevailed in the scuffle is still at the scene and is willing to provide a statement, the officer will then be faced with the decision of which version sounds more believable, as well as which person appears to be more credible, and then make any arrests based on perception and the information at hand. And unfortunately, since the one who took the most severe beating looks more like the victim, the other person is automatically perceived as the aggressor. It isn’t unusual for the physical evidence to support both versions equally or to be silent with regard to who is telling the truth, and in such cases, authorities will typically side with the person who was most injured, accept their version of events, and prosecute the winner of the fight as the aggressor even if the loser of the fight was the real instigator and the winner was acting in self-defense.

Cases such as these require diligent investigation to uncover the facts, including information that was left out or ignored by witnesses and the police. We are highly knowledgeable in the defense of all major crimes and we take any and all steps necessary on behalf of our clients, such as additional tests of the evidence. We ensure that all of the evidence was analyzed correctly and is admissible in court. If your criminal defense lawyer can obtain the information in order to demonstrate to the prosecution that your role in the altercation was, in reality, a matter of self-defense, they may dismiss the case or offer an alternative plea.  As in all cases, if the prosecution is not willing to see reason, the criminal defense attorneys at Decker & Jones will take the case to trial in pursuit of acquittal. If you’ve been charged with assault, call Decker & Jones immediately to discuss your case. Swift action on your behalf is crucial to finding and interviewing witnesses before any more time elapses.

A Fight is No Longer a Simple Matter Once Charges Have Been Filed

While many people consider a bar fight or other physical altercation to be a simple matter to be settled between those who are experiencing conflict, it is actually a fragile situation that can quickly and unexpectedly lead to very serious criminal charges, such as assault on a police officer, first or second degree assault, domestic violence, and other variations of crimes of violence. It’s extremely important to understand that many assault charges carry a mandatory prison sentence, and if you have been charged with assault or another serious or violent crime, you should immediately contact the assault and battery attorneys at Decker & Jones so that you will fully understand what you’re up against. Our criminal defense lawyers are acutely aware of the urgency needed to respond to such charges, and we will be swift, decisive, and powerful in our strategies.
