Aggravated Assault Charges
In Arizona aggravated assault is a felony and can be charged as a dangerous offense. If convicted you will receive a prison sentence and you will lose your right to possess firearms. With an aggravated assault conviction on your record, your employment, housing, and education options will be limited.
We at Chuck Franklin Law represent adults, college students and minors/juveniles charged with aggravated assault in Arizona. My experience with dangerous crimes defense means that I understand that you may be facing severe penalties. After investigating the case and examining the evidence, I will discuss your options with you. If you believe a plea agreement is best, I will pursue one. However, if your best interests are served by taking the case to trial, I will do so.
You Will Be Charged With A Felony
You can be charged with aggravated assault for numerous reasons. A few of the most common reasons include:
- Causing serious physical injury or temporary disfigurement
- Using a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument, including motor vehicles
- Committing assault after entering the private home of another person with intent to assault
- An adult assaulting a minor under age 15
- Assaulting a law enforcement officer, prosecutor, firefighter, teacher or health care worker when doing their job
- Committing assault in violation of an order of protection
In some cases, self defense is a valid defense to an assault charge. In others, errors in police procedure, including a violation of your Miranda rights, may allow us to argue for the suppression of evidence. When possible, I seek to reduce or dismiss charges. If that is not possible, I will work hard to minimize the penalties or proceed to trial.
I also represent people charged with crimes involving simple assault, bar fights, street fights, domestic violence, aggravated domestic violence, aggravated DUI/DWI and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle.
