In Pennsylvania, aggravated assault is a felony crime. Although unlikely, the sentence for aggravated assault can reach up to 20 years in prison.
Aggravated assault charges are often the result of the police or district attorney overreaching on what would otherwise be a simple assault charge. Often, these charges may be dismissed because the defendant did not have the requisite intent or the injury was not serious enough to constitute the crime.
Police are also prone to charge every individual involved in an altercation involving a gun with aggravated assault but, to do so, they must be able to prove that the gun could actually fire and the person charged had the intent to do more than simply scare someone else.
However, as with most criminal charges, the best defense can only be arrived at after careful consideration of all the details of the case with your attorney.
As a criminal defense law firm, we work diligently to find evidence that will support our client's innocence and establish a reasonable doubt that they are guilty of a assault. As your defense attorney, we meticulously review police reports and eyewitness statements. We will conduct our own witness interviews and track down information that can help in obtaining a favorable outcome.
