Aggravated assault statistics and data

There are many forms of aggravated assault, all of which are extremely dangerous. Anybody who is charged with this type of crime could find him or herself in serious trouble with the law. This is why it is important to understand the types of aggravated assault, the potential punishment and the many legal defenses.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, aggravated assault is defined as the unlawful attack by one person on another with the purpose of causing bodily injury.

The FBI shares a variety of statistics regarding aggravated assault, including:

-- In 2011, there were approximately 751,000 aggravated assaults throughout the United States.

-- In 2011, the number of aggravated assaults declined nearly 4 percent when compared to the prior year.

-- A 10-year study, ranging from 2002 to 2011, shows that the rate of aggravated assaults throughout the country is declining.

Despite the fact that aggravated assault is not nearly as common as it once was, this is still a serious crime. As noted by the first statistic, there are roughly 751,000 aggravated assaults reported every year. This is a large number when broken down by the day.

When it comes to aggravated assault, the person charged with a crime needs to understand what happened in the past and how he or she is going to be treated by the legal system. With the right legal strategy, it is possible for aggravated assault to be downgraded to a less serious crime that has fewer consequences.

Being charged with aggravated assault is not uncommon. Even so, this doesn't mean you should be subjected to a punishment you don't deserve.
