We Will Fight Against Your Aggravated Assault Charges
Assaults can range from simple to aggravated and most often occur when arguments get out of hand. For example, many assaults occur between family members or close personal relations, as emotions can run extremely high during intense arguments.

How Your Charges Can Affect Your Specific Case
Whatever the situation is, it is very important to not speak with the police following an arrest. Do not make the mistake of providing them with incriminating statements while you are upset. Request to speak with a lawyer first.
Your sentence, if you’re convicted, will ultimately depend on the seriousness of the charges. The state may charge a simple assault as a misdemeanor, meaning that you could face a sentence ranging from a fine to probation to minor jail time. However, if your aggravated assault is charged as a felony, then you may be facing significant jail time. Attorney Jackson explores every option for an acquittal before engaging in plea bargaining.
