Arizona Assault Law
According to Arizona state law, assault is defined as intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing any physical injury to another person; or intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury; or knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult or provoke such person.
If a deadly weapon is used or other crimes, such as robbery, are involved, the charge may be elevated to aggravated assault, which would enhance the penalties of a conviction. Thus, in Arizona an assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. Also, many domestic violence incidents involve an assault charge.
If convicted of assault, you may face any of the following legal consequences:
- Extensive time in jail
- Heavy fines
- A permanent criminal record
- Mandatory counseling
- Restitution to the victim
- Court-ordered community service
We know how important it is to investigate every aspect of your assault charges in order to minimize your liability. Our goal is to obtain a dismissal of any criminal charges against you. If that is not possible, we can advocate for lesser charges or reduced penalties. No matter what, we listen to your concerns, because your side of the story matters to us.
