Understanding Assault Charges
In Georgia, an assault charge can be filed after one individual threatens to hurt another. This criminal offense differs from battery, which requires physical contact between the assailant and the victim.
We develop compelling cases for clients charged with various types of assault, including:
- Simple assault
- Sexual assault
- Domestic assault
- Aggravated assault
Prosecutors use a range for factors to determine whether the alleged assault should be classified as a misdemeanor or felony. This distinction is important because convicted felons can face lengthy prison sentences and severe fines. Having an assault record can also restrict your access to your children if you are separated or divorced.
An assault can be difficult to prove, but this will not stop prosecutors from filing charges and disrupting your life. When you work with our firm, we do everything in our power to present an effective argument that supports your version of the alleged incident.
