Aggravated Assault

THE LEGAL SUPPORT YOU NEED

Aggravated assault is a violent crime that is a more serious form of assault, an offense that involves attempting, threatening or causing bodily injury to another person. The defendant’s intentions and mental state in this matter are an important part of aggravated assault charges, as he or she would have needed to act intentionally, knowingly or recklessly. Assault is considered “aggravated” when the victim sustains serious bodily injury or when the offense involves the brandishing or use of a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault is generally a second degree felony.

It is important to immediately contact a lawyer if you have been accused of aggravated assault or are currently the subject of a police investigation of this kind. You have the right to legal counsel in these matters, and choosing to involve a criminal defense attorney early in the process will enable him to have a more significant and positive impact on the outcome of your case.

CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR AGGRAVATED ASSAULT
