Do you need a lawyer for a simple assault charge in Bergen County? We can help.
Our domestic violence lawyers represented a victim of simple assault in the Palisades Park Municipal Court in Bergen County. A criminal complaint was filed in the Palisades Park Municipal Court and the judge found probable cause for the issuance of the complaint. Then, in retaliation, the other party filed a simple assault charge against her as well. This is known as “cross-complaints”. As a result, we represented the client in court at the trial where we prosecuted the simple assault charge against the other party and we defended our client against the simple assault charge as well. Our client and the other party were in a dating relationship for 7 months before the incident. Based on the incident, she also obtained a final restraining order against him in the Bergen County Superior Court.
The other party was accused of slapping our client in the face with an open hand and grabbing her by the arms. The police officers who responded to the scene took pictures of her injuries which were admitted at trial as evidence. Based on the testimony of our client, the testimony of the other party, and the evidence submitted in court, the judge convicted the other party of simple assault. This is a disorderly persons criminal charge which will remain on his record. He is also subject to a $1,000 fine and up to six (6) months in the Bergen County jail. In addition, the judge dismissed the simple assault charge that was filed against our client.
