Defending against Aggravated Assault Charges
The consequences associated with aggravated assault convictions are frightening; the possibility of serving jail time, facing substantial fines, or even becoming a felon should be treated seriously. It is advisable, then, that anyone arrested for aggravated assault retain experienced legal representation as early on in the legal process as they possibly can. A good criminal defense attorney will protect you rights and will challenge each and every aspect of your case in an effort to either reduce or altogether eliminate the charges leveled against you.
Common Defenses against Aggravated Assault
Typically, simple assault charges will be elevated to aggravated assault charges whenever there is the presence of what is broadly defined as a deadly weapon, or by the extent to which a victim has been injured in the alleged assault. To defend against charges of aggravated assault, then, a criminal defense attorney may argue that:
- The accused never had the ability to inflict injury upon the victim
- The accused actually acted in self-defense
- The accused did not act intentionally
