Assault and Aggravated Assault Charges in Arizona
Aggravated assault is the classification given to the most serious of all
assault charges. It generally involves significant bodily injury, use
of a deadly weapon, or victimization of an individual with the intent
to inflict harm.
Other forms of criminal assault include:
- Injuring another person
- Domestic violence
- Touching with intent to injure
- Verbal threats
Depending on the specific details, even simple assault misdemeanors can
yield 12 month prison sentences and 3 years of probation - in addition
to fines of up to $2,500. Felony convictions are substantially more serious.
First-time felony assault offenders often face prison time. The right
criminal defense attorney will ensure that your rights aren't trampled
on by prosecutors who are determined to convict.
