Aggravated Assault Understood

Assault With a Deadly Weapon

Assault can be defined as an overt or unlawful threat of violence. Aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon is much more serious charge of assault because it elevates intent through the use of a weapon during the assault. When a weapon of some kind is used in any crime, you can always expect more serious charges. In fact, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a 2nd degree felony. Penalties for this crime if convicted could include large fines and incarceration for up to 20 years. If you have been charged with aggravated assault, know that this is a very serious charge and it would benefit you greatly to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible who can review your case and help you determine your defense. Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty and, depending on the details of your case and the evidence against you, it is very possible to win these types of cases.

Seeking Qualified Legal Defense

The charge of aggravated assault relies heavily on the term deadly weapon. Most people might believe that items like a gun or a knife are examples of deadly weapons. A skilled prosecutor, however, can argue that, in the right circumstances, many items that are not generally thought of as weapons, let alone deadly weapons, can become deadly weapons during an assault. Arguments have been successfully made for baseball bats, automobiles, sticks, and other items to be considered as deadly weapons in these types of cases.
