Kalamazoo Aggravated Assault Laws
Assault occurs when a person uses offensive physical contact, threats, fear, or other violent action against another person, and is a serious crime that can lead to jail time, fines, and other sanctions. Similarly to other criminal offenses, the severity of the penalties that will be on the line in an assault case depend greatly on what happens during and after the offense. Inflicting injury, using a weapon, committing a sexual act, and other offenses can heighten the severity of the charges and lead to enhanced criminal penalties.
Aggravated assault, as defined by Section 750.81a of the Michigan Penal Code, occurs when a person assaults another individual without a weapon, and inflicts serious or aggravated injury, without intent to inflict great bodily harm or commit murder. In aggravated assault cases, the prosecution usually doesn’t have enough to pursue an assault with intent case, and aggravated assault is the next most serious offense, barring other mitigating factors like the involvement of a weapon.
If you have been accused of aggravated assault, it is crucial that you act fast to get in touch with an experienced trial attorney. There will be so much on the line in your case, and simply hiring an attorney who knows what it takes to win will already show police and prosecutors that you are willing to fight to defend yourself.
