Tussle at the Holidays?

The holidays are the perfect time for friends and family to get together – unfortunately, even the best get-togethers can result in an unhappy ending. If you’ve been arrested for assault over the holidays, you need to call the Law Offices of Susan T. Perkins Esq., the premier Providence assault attorney, to defend your rights in a court of law.

Why do you need a Providence assault attorney if you’ve been arrested?

In Rhode Island, getting arrested for assault – even if it’s for a simple, misdemeanor charge – can result in serious consequences. All it takes to get arrested for simple assault is the threat of causing physical injury to another person. For example, if you yell at your aunt and uncle, “I’m going to kill you!” during an argument, you can be charged with simple assault. Or, if you threaten to “beat up” your cousin over Thanksgiving dinner, you can be charged with simple assault.

And while this may seem like a minor – almost laughable – offense, an experienced Providence assault attorney like Susan T. Perkins, Esq., can tell you that under Rhode Island law – specifically, R.I. Gen. Laws § 11-5-3 – if you are convicted of the crime of simple assault, you could be looking at hefty fines (up to $1,000) and up to a year in county jail. Without the aid of Susan T. Perkins, Esq. – The Providence assault attorney that residents have trusted with their cases for more than a decade – those penalties are a very real possibility. That’s a huge price to pay for what amounts to little more than a family dispute that, perhaps, went just a little too far.
