The crime of aggravated assault is the most extreme degree of assault, and therefore constitutes a very serious charge. Aggravated assault is a third-degree felony and is defined by Florida Statute 784.021 as an assault where a person uses a deadly weapon without intent to kill or with an intent to commit a felony.
A person who is convicted of aggravated assault faces a maximum of five (5) years in prison and a $5,000 fine. If you are facing an aggravated assault charge, you need someone to advocate for your rights, and this is a Miami criminal defense lawyer.
