An individual that is charged with assault or aggravated assault could possibly be facing very serious consequences. Depending on the circumstances, a person charged with aggravated assault may be punished by a term of imprisonment even if it is their first offense.

Some circumstances that may increase a person's punishment or enhance a charge to aggravated assault include the following:

  • Use of a dangerous instrument that may cause serious injury to the victim, including a knife, bat, stick, metal pipe, glass bottle, vehicle or other instrument;
  • Use of a deadly weapon, including a gun or rifle;
  • Causing serious bodily injury to the victim, including broken bones or other serious injury.

An individual that is charged with a assault should contact The Newsome Firm right away to evaluate their possible options. An assault conviction can have an ever lasting effect on a individual's life, including a felony record and a possible prison sentence. Due to the seriousness of this type of offense, it is highly recommended that a person hire a criminal defense attorney that will fight on their behalf.
