Do you know the details of an aggravated assault?

Aggravated assault is a serious crime that can carry an accordingly serious penalty as the result of a conviction.

Some of the many factors that can elevate an assault to an aggravated assault include: the use of a weapon, the victim, the intent and the type of injuries suffered by the victim.

Assault with a deadly weapon is one of the most serious forms of aggravated assault. With this, there's one thing you need to remember: It can apply even if the weapon does not cause physical injury to the victim.

There are many weapons that fit into the "deadly weapon category," including any that can cause serious injury or a fatality. These include but are not limited to both guns and knives.

Whether or not an object is deadly is often the result of how it comes into play during the assault. For example, a pocket knife is not a weapon that is generally thought to be deadly, but if it is put up against a person's body, it could potentially cause serious injury or death.

What about sexual assault?

Generally speaking, sexual assaults qualify as their own crime, however, it could also be charged as aggravated assault, rape or assault and battery.

Depending on the circumstances, it's possible that a person could face both sexual assault and aggravated assault charges.

Since there is so much gray area with respect to what is aggravated assault, there are times when a person faces this serious crime when this should not have been the case.

Even though this is a serious crime, you never want to overlook the fact that you have legal rights. If you are dealing with charges of aggravated assault, don't hesitate to learn more about the charges and what you can do to defend yourself as your case moves forward.
