Broward County Assault / Aggravated Assault Lawyer
What is Assault and Aggravated Assault?
Assault is considered the threat of violence or physical assault upon another, without actually carrying out the threat. Most often charged along with Battery, which is the actual physical harm caused to another, Assault & Battery is a common offense. However, when charged only with Assault or Aggravated Assault, this does not mean there are not steep penalties for this charge. Although no actual physical harm may have been caused, the attempt or threat is itself a crime punishable by harsh penalties. If you have a prior criminal record, used a deadly weapon during the assault or threaten a police officer, battery may be classified as anywhere between a first degree misdemeanor all the way to a first degree felony. Penalties may range from up to 12 months in jail all the way to 30 years in state prison.
