Black, Jr. understands know how difficult and stressful this time can be. Depending on the specific charges along with the exact nature of the facts surrounding your alleged involvement in the incident, to an extent your freedom and reputation are being jeopardized.
In New Jersey, “Assault,” now encompasses the area that in prior law was known as assault, battery, atrocious assault and battery, and mayhem as well as various assault with weapons charges. Assault can be charged as either a simple assault or an aggravated assault. The different levels of assault depend on several factors, including the seriousness of a victim’s injury, whether the defendant used a weapon or object to cause an injury. Defending an assault charge requires an aggressive and fact specific analysis. The potential consequences vary greatly and are largely dependent on this analysis.
Simple assault is a disorderly persons offense. Aggravated assault is a crime of either the second, third, or fourth degree. This grading of assault and aggravated assault reflects four factors: (1) the degree of injury inflicted or attempted to be inflicted on the victim; (2) the nature of the force, i.e., whether a firearm or other deadly weapon was used; (3) the mental state of the actor; and (4) the status of the victim.
Depending on your criminal history along with the exact nature of the charge, an assault conviction can result in anything from probation to years of mandatory minimum incarceration with no early release eligibility.
