Possible Defenses for Assault and Battery Charges
The most common defense used for these crimes is self-defense. This is where someone believes that they were about to be attacked or harmed and had to use force to defend themselves properly. However, the amount of force must be reasonable to apply as a defense strategy. Another possible assault and battery defense is the defense of others. This is similar to self-defense with the difference being that other individuals around the person felt an honest fear of harm to another person. The accused must have had reasonable ground for this fear to establish this defense in Denver. Lastly, defense of property is another defense when someone feels that their personal property was being invaded or withheld (such as in a robbery).
