Aggravated assault is when someone attacks you in the process of committing another violent crime. For example: Someone is robbing a bank and then pistol whips one of the tellers. This violent crime can be tried as a criminal charge and/or a civil wrong lawsuit. Before taking any action, you should consult an accomplished Dallas criminal attorney to find out what your options are.
You Need A Strong Advocate
Someone being accused of an aggravated assault offense can receive a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Violent crimes can be punished severely when the accused is convicted. Having a good criminal attorney could be the difference between freedom or years behind bars. The variables that affect the severity of the crime are: injury to the victim, use of weapons, and the criminal record (if any) the accused has. With my extensive experience as an aggressive Texas defense lawyer, you have a much better chance of reaching a favorable outcome.
