Fighting For Your Rights As You Face Assault Charges

If you have been arrested for assault, much of your future is now out of your control. You will not be able to talk your way out of criminal charges, and attempting your own defense is as good as a one-way ticket to a conviction. The best thing you can do for yourself and your future is to choose an attorney.

An Experienced Warner Robins Assault Defense Lawyer

I am Rabb Wilkerson, a former prosecutor who has been defending the rights of the accused for more than 25 years. I represent clients throughout Middle Georgia, including communities along the I-16 and I-75 corridors. I defend against a wide range of assault-related charges, including simple assault and battery and aggravated assault and battery.

Simple assault and battery is a misdemeanor offense that can be punished with fines of up to $1,000 as well as up to one year in jail. Don’t let its status as a misdemeanor lull you into a false sense of security. Having a misdemeanor assault offense on your record can cause problems with background checks and limit your future employment and housing opportunities.

Aggravated assault and battery is a felony resulting from an aggravated factor such as the use of a deadly weapon or intent to cause further harm. Penalties for a conviction include up to 20 years in prison as well as steep fines and restitution payments.

The Respect And Representation You Deserve

I am not here to judge you or treat you like a criminal. I am here to listen to your side of the story and build the strongest possible defense against the assault charges you face. Call the Law Office of T. Rabb Wilkerson, III, P.C., at 478-225-4370 or contact me online to take the first step in your defense.
