Aggravated Assault Charges
As a former prosecutor, I know first-hand how seriously the state takes aggravated assault charges. Aggravated assault crimes bring harm and/or injury to another person and because of this are classified as class 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 felonies. An individual convicted of aggravated assault in Arizona could be facing:
- Prison or jail time – from one to 12.5 years in prison depending on the severity of the charge, a person’s age, nature of the crime and the defendant’s criminal history.
- Fines – Up to $150,000 in some cases.
- Probation – includes months or years of meetings with a probation officer and meeting other terms and conditions such as counseling, anger management classes, and maintaining employment.
- Community service – for a court-appointed number of hours with approved charities and other organizations.
- Restitution – payment to another person or organization for counseling, medical or shelter services for the victim or other person’s involved and injured by the offense.
