PHOENIX ASSAULT DEFENSE ATTORNEY
Former Police Officer
Twenty Years Criminal Defense
As a Phoenix, Arizona Criminal Defense Attorney, Raymond Kimble has defended hundreds of individuals who have been arrested and charged with assault. Generally, assault is the act of causing injury to another person or placing them in fear of being injured. An assault conviction can result in severe penalties including probation, fines, jail or prison terms.
Depending upon the circumstances surrounding an incident, assault can be charged as a felony, commonly referred to as Aggravated Assault or misdemeanor offense, known as Simple Assault. In the State of Arizona, assaults are usually prosecuted as misdemeanors when only minor injuries are suffered by the victim. Alternatively, assaults are prosecuted as felonies in Arizona when more serious injuries occur such as a bone fracture, or in cases where the alleged victims are police officers, teachers, firefighters or medical care workers. If a weapon such as a gun, knife or other dangerous instrument is used during the commission of an assault, the charged will be characterized as a "Dangerous Offense" and the penalties can involve mandatory prison terms.
