El Paso Aggravated Assault Defense Lawyers
Certain factors can aggravate charges of assault, turning them into felonies that carry potential prison sentences of more than a year. The following are the two most common aggravated charges:
- Assault with a deadly weapon: To convict you of this, the prosecutor needs to prove that you used a firearm or other deadly weapon to threaten someone with violence.
- Assault resulting in serious bodily injury: To convict you of this, the prosecutor needs to prove that you physically struck someone who was seriously injured as a result.
The police do not always investigate these cases as well as they should. Very often, whoever “lost” a fight or called 911 first is treated as the “victim,” regardless of who actually started the fight or who escalated the conflict by using more than a reasonable level of force.
If you hire our firm to represent you, we will carefully investigate the facts of your case, including your background and the background of your accuser. Despite the seriousness of these offenses, our experienced lawyers may be able to prevent you from going to jail, even if convicted. It may be possible to work toward a suspended sentence or probation.
