Aggravated assault in Alabama is a serious issue even though Alabama only has “assault” designated as a formal crime. If you are looking for a defense attorney after your arrest on assault charges, criminal defense lawyers at Boles Holmes White LLC are ready to protect your rights.
Alabama law classifies first-degree assault as the most serious assault charge. This crime is a felony and can lead to serious prison time: the maximum allowed is twenty years and fines may be in excess of $30,000 if you are convicted. The charge typically involves serious injury and may also include assault with a deadly weapon. Such cases may also be related to reckless behavior, other crimes like domestic violence, rape, theft crimes, and even DUI. In such cases, having the right attorney on your side is crucial. Minimize your risks of incarceration with Boles Holmes White LLC defending you. We will examine the evidence, interrogate arresting officers, question witnesses, and assert your rights aggressively. Our goal will be to get your charges dropped or at least significantly reduced. If we go to trial, you will have a tenacious defense against Alabama assault charges with our skilled attorneys at your side. Contact us now for your defense against assault charges.
Second-degree assault is also considered a felony in Alabama and can lead to significant prison time, a long probation, fines and other long-lasting punishments. If you are charged with second-degree assault, defense attorneys at Boles Holmes White LLC will do all we can to get your charges reduced and, perhaps, dismissed. These cases may be related to drug charges, other forms of assault, resisting arrest or interfering with a police investigation. Call us to discuss all of the details of your circumstances with an experienced and skilled assault attorney.
Third-degree assault is a misdemeanor but still carries heavy consequences in Alabama: a year in jail and thousands of dollars in fines. Law enforcement may arrest you for assault if you interfere with their duties, recklessly use a weapon, or cause any physical injury intentionally or not. If you are facing a second or subsequent misdemeanor assault charge you may face even more serious criminal penalties. Contact a assault attorney to defend your rights against charges in Alabama.
