What Is Aggravated Assault?

In Maryland, you can be charged with assault or battery for minor physical contact or even the threat of physical contact. The charge can be elevated to aggravated assault if:

  • The assault resulted in serious injuries.
  • You used a gun, knife or other weapon, even if the injuries were not serious.
  • There are certain other aggravating circumstances such as an elderly victim.

Aggravated assault is a felony that can result in a significant jail time and a permanent criminal record. Any time you are facing felony charges, it's important to contact an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.

However, it often takes the help of an experienced defense attorney to ensure that all relevant facts and circumstances are brought to the surface. Our lawyers are committed to defending those accused of assault, and we diligently work to find flaws in the State's case.
