Understanding Aggravated Assault Charges In Mesa

Aggravated assault is a much more serious crime than simple assault in Arizona. As explained in Arizona Revised Statutes Section 13-1204, aggravated assault charges can be filed if:

  • The assault causes serious physical injury or substantial temporary disfigurement
  • There was a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument used during the commission of the crime
  • The assault victim is bound or restrained
  • An adult commits an assault on a minor age 15 or younger
  • A person enters a private home and commits assault
  • A police officer, firefighter, corrections officer, health care professional, or other protected person is assaulted

Depending on the circumstances of the crime, charges for aggravated assault can range from a Class 2 to a Class 6 felony. This could mean a prison sentence of anywhere from 18 months to 21 years and fines as high as $150,000.
