Assault and Domestic Assault Lawyer

Minneapolis Assault Defense Attorney -Assault and Domestic assault charges:

Assault and domestic assault ranges in degree from 5th degree, a misdemeanor, to 1st degree assault, a felony. They vary in degrees based on the injury inflicted, weapon used, prior record of defendant and many other factors.

I just had a client ask me “why can they charge me with assaulting this person if I never laid a hand on them?”. This is not an unusual question. In fact, there is often confusion why a person can be charged with assaulting another if they did not cause harm or inflict injury. The reality is you can be charged with assault if you merely cause fear in another person.

(1) With intent to cause fear in another person of immediate bodily harm or death; OR
(2) Intentionally inflicts or attempts to inflict bodily harm upon another.

1st degree assault is always a felony. This charge has a presumptive commit to prison. First degree Assault involves great bodily harm or use of a deadly weapon against a peace officer or correctional employee.

It is imperative to hire a lawyer if charged with any degree of assault. These cases are both enhanceable and often will impact your entire future if not handled properly with legal representation. My goal as an attorney is to resolve a case in such a way to have the least amount of impact on my client’s life and future.

Please contact our attorney for the most up to date information regarding the current laws. This article does not constitute an attorney-client relationship.
