In Virginia Assault and Battery cases, one of the fundamental issues is Primary Aggressor. Who was the Primary Aggressor? If the Primary Aggressor was not the person charged, the defense strategy is always to assert the affirmative defense of Self Defense.
In trials for #Assault and #Battery, if Self Defense is asserted, the burden falls on the defense to prove the Self Defense. This is achieved through careful cross examination of the Government witnesses and usually requires the Defense to place the Defendant on the stand. This must be carefully weighed and much preparation is required.
In this case, the Firm prepared the case fully for trial. All aspects of the case including actual physical movements during the altercation were reviewed and parsed.
