What evidence is used in Huntsville assault cases?
In assault cases, the arresting officer is typically not present on the scene at the time that the assault related incident occurred. The officer relies on the testimony of the alleged victim, witnesses, and the information provided in the incident report. This information might not be entirely accurate. The altercation (when assault charges occurred) may have been a matter of self-defense. The account of the incident could be distorted and one-sided, as sometimes occurs in heated situations that lead to an assault charge. It is imperative that you retain an award-winning criminal defense to ensure your rights remain protected.
