  • assault and battery

    Okay last month I was in a fight with something and the police charged me with assault and battery but I did not start it the other person did. The other person has marks on him and I did not. I go to court this monday on it but will this hurt my chance of coming a cop???

    Thanks,
    Joey

        Even if it hurts you at 21, a 4 year stint in the military will probably make it not a problem if you are not convicted.

          If you are arrested for simple battery (minor fight w/little or no injury) you might be ok-if you distance yourself from that incident. You probably wont get hired a year after the arrest but your chances will be better down the road. If there are any domestic or family elements, you will have problems.

          I am guessing you went a bit beyond self defense, if you were arrested.

            I would get it postponed and hire a lawyer. Whatever happens Monday will be on every job application you fill out for the rest of your life. Make sure you make every effort to not be convicted of anything.

              It would be easier to make sure you don't get arrested, in the first place.

                Obviously. I'm just saying make the best of the situation. He still could get the charges dropped, and that way in the future he can say, yes I was arrested but the charges were dropped.

                I've seen people get screwed by going into municipal court thinking everything will be fine, I'll just handle it and then they end up strong armed by the prosecutor and judge into pleading guilty to something.

                  Well I found out if I'm found guilty I will lose my job with walmart and I been there for 4 years so its would be really hard to leave that way. The person that I hit is not the one pressing charges it's the state since the person did not want two but he does have a say in it also (I think). But when I told them I will lose my job if I am found guilty and they thought I was lieing till I had the asst DM tell them and now the person feels bad since I like working for walmart.

                      Ok, I'm a non-LEO asking a question!

                      I had an incident about a week ago where I witnessed a woman punching another male in the parking lot. This was caught on camera. She was also intoxicated. The guy didn't want to press charges. Could she still have been charged being that we (security) witnessed it? Could we have detained her until the police arrived? I get different answers from LEO's.

                        Under Indiana law, yes. You could have conducted a citizen's arrest and held her for the police.

                            Thanks Tennsix!

                            I'm sure the law is the same here in Illinois. I got a response from one of the city police that they probably wouldn't have bothered doing anything since the guy didn't want to press charges. That woman got some good head shots in on that guy, but she was leaving as we came up on the incident. I just asked for future reference.

                              Here in Indiana, if a citizen makes an arrest the police take your prisoner and process him or her. They are not responsible to the legalities of your arrest. The arrest is your baby.

                              Now, the porsecutor might not file if the victim does not want to follow through. That does not make it a bad arrest though.

                              But a citizen arrest is basically limited to felonies and witnessed misdemeanors that breach the peace.
