Assault Defense

Assault is defined as a crime of violence against another person. It would be considered a crime if the other person intends to cause fear in another person of immediate bodily harm or death, or intentionally inflicts or attempts to inflict bodily harm upon another. Someone convicted of an assault crime could face anywhere from 90 days to 20 years of prison time. In addition, the consequences of a conviction include numerous court fines and a mark on your criminal record – something that could follow you for years as you apply for new jobs and housing.
