AGGRESSIVELY CHALLENGING ASSAULT CHARGES
HONEST, AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION
Assault charges can stem from numerous situations that many college students find themselves in regularly. Bar fights and arguments that got out of hand can all lead to criminal charges that can impact your standing at school and your future opportunities.
I am criminal defense lawyer William A. Hodge, and I have years of experience protecting students of the University of South Carolina, Midlands Technical College and other schools in the Columbia area. I know what’s at stake, and will fight to protect you.
FINDING FAVORABLE WITNESS TESTIMONY
Assault charges are often a he-said-she-said ordeal. For this reason, witness testimony is paramount in building a strong defense. I approach every assault case by gathering as much information as possible about the incident in an attempt to understand the root cause. I will seek out potential witnesses in an effort to shine light on the situation. Finding witnesses who can state that you were not the initiator can bolster your case.
REVIEWING THE CRIMINAL HISTORY OF THE OTHER PERSON
The history of the individual you are accused of assaulting can play an important role in your assault case. If he or she has a history of violence, it can weaken the prosecution’s case against you.
PROTECTING STUDENTS WITH HONEST AND AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION
As your attorney, I will never mislead you about any aspect of your case because I believe you have a right to know the truth. I have handled numerous assault cases and have extensive experience as a prosecutor, so I know what you are up against. I will explain your options and build an aggressive defense to protect your freedom and your future.
