If you have been charged with battery or disorderly conduct, I can help. I am Waukesha battery lawyer Craig Kuhary. I defend people charged with disorderly conduct, battery (assault) and child abuse in southeastern Wisconsin.
Contact me at the criminal defense firm of Walden, Neitzke & Kuhary, S.C., for a free, confidential consultation. I will immediately begin working on your defense, gathering and reviewing police reports. If you were arrested for child abuse, we can explore a defense of reasonable parental discipline.
There are different levels of domestic battery charges, ranging from ordinance violations such as disorderly conduct, where you would only have to pay a fine, to felonies that can result in jail or prison time.
Here are some of the most common assault offenses, ranging from the least to the most serious:
I can seek a pretrial offer from the prosecutor, and then advise you whether you should have me try the case or accept a plea arrangement.
You should never plead guilty in a battery case, since a guilty plea can be used against you in a civil action as well as the criminal case. Even if you are guilty, I will enter a plea of no contest, which can’t be used against you.
