Charged with Common Assault

Many allegations of common assault, especially common assault domestic violence are made following an argument in a domestic scenario. The complaint will be made by one party to the relationship, usually when extremely upset or angry. Very often alcohol will have been consumed by the complainant also. This results in complaints of domestic violence being made which are either untrue or exaggerated.

As common assault defence lawyers we regularly see the scenario where sometime thereafter, the complainant wants to drop the charges of common assault. If the common assault charge is a domestic violence  related offence, in our experience which is considerable, the Police and  Crown Prosecution Service will very rarely let the complainant withdraw their statement even if the complainant states clearly that they do not support a prosecution for common assault.

This means that  the person charged with common assault will plead not guilty. It is essential to seek the services of a specialist common assault defence lawyer in order to do everything possible to ensure a not guilty verdict.
