In our previous blog post, we discussed the differences between assault and aggravated assault. If you recall, aggravated assault is the more serious of the two charges. That doesn't mean that assault charges aren't serious. They are actually very serious. If you are facing any type of assualt charge, including aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon, you should understand what options you have for your defense. The possibilities might even change as the case moves through the criminal justice system.
We can help you to learn about what options you have from the start of your case through the ultimate resolution of the case. This can include evaluating your case, exploring the evidence against you, determining what evidence supports your claim, and finding out if there are any plea deals that might help you. Throughout the process, you have to be an active participant in your defense strategy.
When you consider the penalties associated with an assault conviction, you can see why a defense is so important. Not only are facing possible incarceration, you might be facing fines and other penalties. We know that you probably want to keep the penalties that you will have to deal with to a minimum. While there is no way that we can guarantee a specific outcome for your case, we can work to present a defense that shows your side of the case.
Make sure that you get to work on your defense as quickly as possible. The last thing that you need if you are facing these serious charges is a defense plan that was thrown together at the last minute.
