Additional Information:

In North Chelmsford, I was arrested for assault and battery and also charged with resisting arrest.  If I hire an attorney and get off on the battery charge will the resisting arrest charge be dismissed? Thank you.

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

The purpose of hiring an attorney is for more than simply to “get off” on the charges.  It is imperative that anyone charged with a crime has representation so that one’s constitutional rights are protected throughout the entire criminal process.  Unfortunately, the dismissal or other resolution of an Assault & Battery does not guarantee that the  Resisting Arrest charge will be dismissed.  I would strongly urge you to retain counsel in order to determine your best strategy in handling these serious charges.
