Criminal Charges


Sexual Assault

Just because you are facing this charge, doesn’t mean you are guilty. It only means that you need an experienced Massachusetts criminal defense attorney, like the attorneys at, The Law Offices of Elliot Savitz, Scott Bradley & Kenneth Diesenhof. Unlike a charge of Assault and Battery, a charge of Sexual Assault may also require you to register as a sex offender. Beyond damaging your reputation, this kind of charge can have other catastrophic effects that may change your life. Registered sex offenders often have difficulty finding housing, jobs, and even future partners, who are wary of this unfortunate label.

The Definition of Assault And Battery

Aggravated Assault & Battery by definition occurs when one person causes or tries to cause a severe injury to another person, with the use of a deadly weapon.In Massachusetts, a person can be charged with an Assault, a Battery, or an Assault And Battery (A&B). The Assault is the crime of threatening a person with physical force, while the Battery is the act of making physical contact with the victim. The definition of an Assault & Battery (A&B), on the other hand, involves a single crime that includes the crime of threatening a person (Assault) together with the act of making physical contact with him/her (Battery).

The History of Assault and Battery

Back in 1919, several men attempted to escape when the police raided a house, in which they were gambling. In the ensuing melee, one of them assaulted and battered a police officer. There was some evidence that the Assault and Battery was premeditated as a way to avoid arrest. The question the court had to decide was whether only the individual who committed the Assault and Battery was liable or given the alleged premeditated nature of the crime, the whole group was guilty.
