Athens Aggravated Assault Attorney

Georiga Aggravated Assault Laws & Penalties

As a felony offense, the criminal sentence for an aggravated assault charge could include up to 20 years in prison as well as fines, probation, community service and more.

Violent acts that qualify for aggravated assault include:

  • Rape
  • Murder
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Discharging a firearm towards another person

There are other factors that could result in an increased prison sentence. For example, committing assault against an on-duty law enforcement agent could result in 5 to 20 years in prison, while assault against a victim over the age of 65 is punishable by 3 to 20 years of imprisonment.

Our firm is committed to defending the rights of individuals charged with criminal offenses. Call (706) 705-5122 to discuss your case.

Challenging An Aggravated Assault Charge

An aggravated assault charge can result in far more than a criminal sentence-a conviction will also be reported on your criminal record. This can seriously impact your ability to apply for jobs or school. For this reason, fighting your case is recommended.

Depending on your case, a number of potential defenses can be used to challenge your charge. For example, the prosecution must prove there was intent to harm another person. However, a defense lawyer may argue that you were saying things in anger, rather than actually threatening bodily harm against the victim.
