Domestic violence case against Tennessee athlete dismissed

Just because you have been charged with domestic violence or assault, doesn't mean that you will face conviction, or even a trial. Charges were recently dropped against Tennessee wideout Josh Smith after an alleged domestic violence incident at his home, which he shared with two friends. We often think of domestic violence involving dating or married couples, but the law is based on proximity between the two parties, not just relationship. In this case, the parties were roommates who got into an altercation after a night of drinking.

Possible defenses for assault and battery

If you have been accused of physically injuring someone or attempting to injure them, you may face assault or battery charges. Being charged with a violent crime is serious and could lead to long-term consequences. Many Tennessee residents convicted of these criminal charges face years in prison.
