Detroit Criminal Assault and Battery Lawyer Kevin Bessant Can Win Your Case Before A Jury!!


In most cases where criminal assault charges are filed, the prosecuting attorney will review the police report and warrant information to determine exactly what type of charges to file, before they will ever hear your side of the story. This type of prosecutorial oversight can lead to a wrongful conviction if your case is not handled correctly. Allow the Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates to defend yourcase in court and allow your side of the story to be told.


In Michigan, you can be charged with both an “assault” and or an “assault & battery” under MCL 750.81. A battery is considered any violent, forceful, or offensive touching of another person or anything connected to that person. A person can be charged with assault and battery if the defendant places the victim under an imminent threat of harm or fearful apprehension, while also intending to commit a battery against the person.


Such charges can result in serious punishment depending on the severity of the assault. Penalties can include misdemeanor or felony charges and may jeopardize your personal freedom and your future professional goals. The Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates has helped several clients avoid jail and prison in their cases!


You Have a Right To Defend Yourself Even If You Have Been Charged


The Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates will not only protect your rights in court, but he understands that your future is on the line as well. Hiring experienced attorney Kevin Bessant can mean the difference between a dismissal of your charges or a permanent conviction on your criminal record.


Self defense is one of the most common defenses raised in a criminal case. The key consideration is whether you acted reasonable under the circumstances in protecting yourself, another person or property from immediate or imminent danger or what you reasonably perceived to be a dangerous situation.


Kevin Bessant has successfully raised this defense on several occasions at trial to reach a not guilty verdict. This is because often times when the police respond to the scene, or a police report is filed detailing an alleged assault you committed, the police and prosecution could care less about your side of the story and whether or not you acted in self-defense prior to your arrest and subsequent charges.



The Law Office of Kevin Bessant & Associates will not only aggressively advocate on your behalf, but he will be sure the Judge and Jury hears your side of the story so that your voice can finally be heard in your time of need.
