Defending Service Members Throughout the U.S. Experience You Can Count On

Fort Campbell Military Assault Defense Attorney

Dedicated Defense for Service Members in Clarksville, TN & Nationwide

Assault and battery, though often charged together, are two separate crimes. Whereas “assault” refers to the intent or attempt to cause bodily harm to another person, “battery” is the actual physical violence that results in the injury or death of someone else. Civilians who are accused of and charged with assault and/or battery face a number of serious penalties, as do military service members. However, the criminal law process in military assault cases differs significantly from the civilian criminal justice system.

If you are a military service member who has been accused of assault or battery, you are subject to an investigation and possible court-martial. This can lead to a number of negative consequences, including dishonorable discharge, loss of future veterans’ benefits, imprisonment, and more. It’s important that you ensure your rights are protected by working with an experienced military criminal defense attorney.

What Are the Penalties for Military Assault?

Military assault is generally considered a serious offense and one that is punishable by court-martial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). A court-martial conviction can, in turn, result in serious penalties, which may affect everything from your reputation to your career to your freedom. Various factors, such as nature of the alleged assault and whether or not a weapon was used in the commission of the crime, will play a large role in the possible penalties you face. A more severe offense, such as aggravated assault, will likely result in harsher penalties.

Penalties for military assault may include:

  • Confinement
  • Forfeiture of pay
  • Reduction in rank
  • Dishonorable discharge
  • Up to 10 years’ imprisonment (and up to 20 years in certain cases)
