About Assault Charges
Many individuals are unaware of the fact that seriously threatening to harm another human being is a crime that carries with it significant penalties and consequences. Even if you do not lay a hand on the individual, if your actions towards that individual can be interpreted as threatening in any way, you can be charged with assault. Unlike battery charges, assault tends to deal with the verbal or physical threat of violence instead of the actual act of inflicting physical violence.
Types of Assault Charges
It is important to be aware of the different charges that can be leveled against you when it comes to assaulting another individual.
Some common assault charges include:
- Simple assault
- Gang activity
- Assault and battery
- Aggravated assault
- Domestic assault
- Sexual assault
Law enforcement officers take assault charges very seriously due to the very real potential that the situation will escalate into physical violence. No matter what the circumstances behind your supposed crime may be, a knowledgeable defense attorney will be able to represent your interests and ensure that you are treated fairly.
