Getting my client’s charge of battery dismissed in Fulton:In December, I appeared in Fulton County Magistrate Court to defend my client charged with simple battery.
Georgia code 16-5-23 describes battery as making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with the intention of causing physical harm to another person.
Simple battery is a criminal misdemeanor, and it can carry penalties of up to one year in prison and fines reaching $1000, including probation and restitution to the victim.
Following considerable negotiation with the prosecutor, I got my client’s charge dismissed.
My client is very grateful and happy to be another client of the Alpharetta, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, criminal defense attorney Scott Miller.
If you have been charged with battery, or you have other criminal matters to discuss, you may contact Attorney Scott Miller at 770-408-1001 for a free consultation.
