You Could Be Facing Substantial Jail Time

The punishment increases dramatically whenever a weapon is used in the commission of an assault and battery. Simple assault and battery without a weapon is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum jail term of 90 days and a fine of up to $1,000. Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon is a felony that carries a sentence of up to 10 years in a state penitentiary. Assault and battery with a deadly weapon is a felony that carries a sentence of up to life in prison. 

Assault and battery with a dangerous or deadly weapon may also be accompanied by other charges related to the circumstances of the alleged crime, such as kidnapping, threatening a violent act, or interfering with an emergency call. To protect yourself, you will want to retain legal representation immediately. Do not talk about the case with anyone other than your attorney, and do not agree to speak to the police without your lawyer present.
