Self-defense is often a consideration for a defense to an assault and battery. Additionally, the credibility of the allegations in light of the potential motivation for falsely accusing may be called into question. Mistaken identity or provocation are other potential defenses to these types of cases. Additionally, because the nature of the injury or potential injury largely determines the degree of the charge, these charges are often over-charged.
