Being charged with an assault crime can mean you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. The penalties range from 30 days in jail for simple assault and battery 3rd degree to 25 years in prison for attempted murder.
In Horry County, law enforcement’s job is to protect the citizens using every possible asset at their disposal. However, sometimes innocent citizens are arrested and charged with an assault crime.
There are defenses to these charges and seeking experienced legal help is critical to your case outcome and your future. Oftentimes you may have been charged with the wrong offense and face unfair punishment. It is also possible that your assault incident was overcharged, meaning an assault and battery 2nd degree may actually be a true assault and battery 3rd degree.
