Assault and Battery With A Weapon in OKC
Assault and battery with a weapon in OKC is some of the most common criminal charges. However, when a weapon is involved in the attack, the charges become amplified. Depending on the circumstances in your case, you may be facing:
- Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon: These charges can stem from a range of scenarios, such as a bar fight or a domestic dispute. It’s important to understand that basic assault/battery charges are different from assault/battery with a deadly weapon. If you smack a person with your hand, it is considered basic violence. However, if you use an object during the attack that can inflict bodily harm (such as a baseball bat, a vase, an ashtray) the charges will escalate to assault/battery with a dangerous weapon.
- Assault and battery with a deadly weapon: This felony charge involves a physical attack with an object that could inflict fatal injuries to another individual, such as a gun or knife. In the most serious cases, prosecutors may push for an enhanced charge that includes intent to kill, such as in a drive-by-shooting case. Consequences for these charges can range from 10 years to life in prison.
