An aggravated assault can be committed by threatening or causing bodily
injury (pain) while using or displaying a deadly weapon. Serious bodily
injury causes a substantial risk of death or disfigurement or long-term
impairment. Generally, aggravated assault is a second-degree felony punishable
by a fine not to exceed $10,000 and up to 20 years confinement in prison.
When charged with a violent crime, the stakes are raised. Prosecutors faced
with a community demanding they "get tough on crime" have their
backs to the wall. You could be facing serious jail time as well as having
a record of a violent crime that will follow you for the rest of your
life. Having an experienced and able trial attorney can make all the difference
in your outcome.
