Charged with Battery on LEO in Ocala, FL?

An individual charged with battery on a law enforcement officer or fireman may be facing conviction of a third degree felony. While the majority of police are honest and working to keep the peace, there are instances where a law enforcement officer uses this charge to gain control of a legal situation. This can work against the defendant even more than usual because prosecution of alleged crimes as serious as felonious battery is already prosecuted vigorously in court with the intention of maximum penalties. To now add the concept of an attack on a police officer can make matters even worse.

Being the accused individual in such a case can result in jurors and others making a "guilty" determination in their minds before any evidence have been brought before the court. Getting a knowledgeable attorney to defend you is thus the most crucial move you can make for opening up your chances for a favorable outcome of your case. You need to ensure that your rights and freedoms are protected and tenaciously represented by a dedicated lawyer.
