DuPage County Battery on a Police Officer Attorneys

Exposing False Charges to Cover Excessive Force

When you are accused of aggravated battery on a police officer, prosecutors are particularly zealous in pursuing convictions. Because prosecutors consider protection of law enforcement officers to be an important priority, the assistant district attorney (ADA) might not be particularly interested in your account of your encounter with the arresting officer. The failure of prosecutors to keep an open mind in this situation can result in false charges because officers often claim the accused has committed battery or resisted arrest after the officer has used excessive force when the accused has been tazed or beaten.

Our Illinois aggravated battery defense lawyers at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. have been representing individuals charged with felonies for more than two decades. The distinguished reputation of our criminal defense attorneys has been built on the tenacious defense of our clients’ rights and favorable results. Whether we are aggressively cross-examining the arresting officer or attacking chemical reports indicating our client was intoxicated during the encounter, our attorneys rely on the experience derived while representing over 16,000 people accused of misdemeanors and felonies. Donald Ramsell has been recognized as an “Illinois Super Lawyer” by Chicago Magazine. Our success in handling complex and notable criminal cases has garnered coverage on ABC’s “20/20”, FOX, Court-TV, NBC and CBS as well as national media publications like The Financial Times, Washington Post and New York Times.

Aggravated Battery to a Police Officer Constitutes a Serious Felony in Illinois

If you are arrested for aggravated battery to a police officer, you will be charged with a felony. While a number of factors will determine the grade of the felony, you can be charged with any of the following:

  • Class 4 Felony: 1 to 3 years in prison;
  • Class 3 Felony: 2 to 5 years in prison; or
  • Class 2 Felony 3 to 7 years in prison.

The exposure you face will depend on the specific statute that is the basis of the charge filed by the prosecutor. Our criminal defense attorneys focus on keeping our clients informed regarding their rights, options and potential defenses, so the criminal justice process seems less foreign and frightening.
