Aggravated Assault Attorneys Arizona

Aggressive Defense for the Accused in Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa & Beyond

In certain circumstances, Arizona has deemed that someone who commits assault must receive more punishment than what would be available under the ordinary assault statute (see our Assault practice area page for more information on ordinary assault). Under those circumstances, the state will charge the person with aggravated assault under A.R.S. 13-1204.

If you have been charged with aggravated assault, you face very serious penalties, including years in prison and harsh fines. A conviction will threaten your freedom, your rights, and your entire future. You need an aggressive defense team on your side; you need Oliverson & Huss Law PLLC. With over 40 years of combined experience, our Arizona aggravated assault lawyers are prepared to fight for you.

When Is Ordinary Assault Charged as Aggravated Assault?

There are several elements that can cause an ordinary assault to be charged as an aggravated assault, including:

  • Causing serious physical injury or substantial disfigurement to another
  • Use of a deadly weapon during the offense
  • Restraining the victim
  • Defendant is over the age of 18 who is alleged to have assaulted a victim who is 15 years or younger
  • Victim is a police officer, firefighter, teacher, health care provider, prison guard, or prosecutor

Penalties for Aggravated Assault in Arizona

For a first-offense aggravated assault, you could be sentenced to serve 5 to 15 years in prison. If you have any prior felony conviction or other aggravating circumstances, your sentence could be substantially harsher. It is absolutely vital that you get an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney on your side immediately to begin your representation.
