Provo Aggravated Assault Attorney | Utah Violent Crimes Defense
Aggravated Assault Law in Utah
Utah statutes elevate a simple assault charge to a felony aggravated assault charge if a person either commits assault with the use of a dangerous weapon, or if a person commits assault and uses any means or force likely to produce serious bodily injury or death. That charge becomes a second degree felony charge of aggravated assault if the assault indeed results in serious bodily injury. These felony charges bring harsh treatment in the law and can mean significant incarceration, hefty fines, and a significant stain on one’s record. Don’t face these charges alone. Seek the counsel of a qualified defense attorney to ensure the best outcome for you in your case.
