Battery With A Deadly Weapon

Battery with a Deadly Weapon is a Felony offense in Las Vegas, Nevada and subjects an offender to a term of 2-15 years of prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The length of the potential prison term depends on whether or not substantial bodily harm resulted from the battery. A Deadly Weapon is considered any item that if used under certain circumstances is capable of causing substantial bodily harm.  Therefore, not only could you be charged with Felony Battery with a Deadly Weapon if you used unlawful force or violence upon someone with a gun or knife, but you can also be charged if you used unlawful force or violence on someone with pool stick or glass bottle, because those items are capable of causing someone “substantial bodily harm”.

Troiano will prepare an effective legal defense for your Battery with a Deadly Weapon charge and fight to keep your record clean.
