Aggravated Assault Cases Of 2015

Aggravated assault is a crime which criminal laws punish more severely due to its seriousness. Circumstances that can raise an assault to an aggravated assault typically include the use of a weapon, the status of the victim – for example a police officer or teacher, the intent of the perpetrator – meaning did they intend to cause detrimental harm, or show an obvious indifference to the person harmed, and the degree of injury caused – meaning causing injuries threatening death. Assaults that happen in a home can also qualify as an aggravated assault.
