Aggravated Assault Charges in Atlanta
What is aggravated assault?
The crime of aggravated assault is not taken as a joke by prosecution or law enforcement. Georgia is no exception. Assault is charged when the defendant allegedly commits assault in any of the following manners:
- With intent to murder, rape, or rob
- With a deadly weapon or with any object, device, or instrument
- Without legal justification by discharging a firearm within a motor vehicle toward a person
If the other party involved in an altercation suffered serious injury, you may face felony penalties. In most cases, individuals convicted of aggravated assault can face a max punishment of 20 years in prison. Higher penalties can be incurred, however.
