Understanding the factors involved with aggravated assault

While emotions can sometimes get the best of us, when it comes to assault charges, there are various factors that could elevate this criminal charge. No matter the cause or intent of the matter, when an individual in New York or elsewhere faces allegations of aggravated assault, this is likely to mean harsher penalties and consequences for this violent crime. Because an elevated charge could greatly impact a defendant, it is imperative that they understand how an assault charge is raised to this offense as well as defense options available.

Being accused of a criminal charge, no matter the severity, is likely to impact the life of the accused offender.

Whether it's a simple traffic violation or a misdemeanor traffic offense, a traffic ticket can carry with it serious consequences.
