Middlesex County Assault Defense Attorney

A person commits aggravated assault when he or she causes serious injury to another person, or attempts to injure another person, with extreme indifference to the value of human life. Aggravated assault charges almost always stem from the use of a deadly weapon.

According to the Graves Act, in New Jersey, the penalties for any crime involving a weapon are increased. Whether the defendant is accused of using a knife, gun or his own fists, if convicted of aggravated assault, the defendant faces an increased prison sentence with parole ineligibility periods. In order to fight a weapons offense, the defendant must take his or her case to trial, as plea bargaining is not permitted.
