    If you are falsely accused, it makes sense to work with a criminal defense lawyer to defend against the charges. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you should consider petitioning for a court-appointed lawyer.

    First offenders for assault usually get probation, fines, and possibly community service, but individual mileage may vary - if you want an accurate estimate of your sentence, you need to consult a local lawyer.
