Two women arrested for alleged assault

Being arrested for a serious crime can be a scary time for a defendant and their families. It can feel like everyone, including the public, media and law enforcement are against you. In these situations, having a criminal defense attorney on your side can be a valuable resource.

Two women from Baton Rouge were recently arrested for allegedly assaulting another woman. The two defendants were accused of stabbing a woman with a knife, slashing the woman's tires, and using a bat to break the front and back windows of her car. The woman also claims that during the attack she fell and was then shot at by one of the women. Two women have been arrested and officers are still seeking a third suspect.

When someone has been arrested for a violent crime, there is no doubt that these are serious charges. A legal professional who is skilled in criminal defense can be a defendant's best defense. The defense attorney a defendant chooses can make all the difference in their case. An attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding their client's arrest, examine and challenge the evidence, and ensure their client's rights were not violated. They will aggressively defend their client and will bring their case to court if an agreement with the prosecution cannot be reached.

Having a strong defense is important for someone who has been charged with a serious crime. A conviction for assault or murder charges can bring serious penalties including years in prison or even the death penalty. An attorney can help their client tell his side of the story and protect their rights inside and outside of the courtroom.
