Assault And Battery Charges In North Carolina
Assault and battery charges have serious consequences if you are convicted or plead guilty. The consequences will affect your rights and freedom for the rest of your life. Representation from an experienced, resourceful and dedicated criminal defense lawyer is critical from the beginning.
