Defending Against Aggravated Assault Charges
Accord Attorneys stands ready to provide unwavering legal support when facing the gravest form of assault charges in Canadian criminal law—Aggravated Assault. This charge is distinguished by the severity of harm inflicted upon the alleged victim, categorized into four distinct elements:
● Wounding: Injuries involving skin puncture, ranging from small cuts to deep gashes or bullet wounds, may constitute wounding. The severity of the injury directly impacts the penalty, often necessitating medical evidence to establish the extent of the wounds.● Maiming: Any injury hypothetically rendering the victim unable to fight, such as damage to muscles, tendons, or fractures, requiring medical evidence to substantiate the claim.● Disfiguring: Injuries causing a person to appear differently than before, including scars resulting from cuts, bullet wounds, or damage to body parts. Permanent disfigurement can intensify the sentence.● Endangering of Life: Assault or attacks that pose a threat to life and require expert medical opinion and evidence to establish the endangerment of the victim's life.
The repercussions of an Aggravated Assault conviction are severe, including:● Up to 14 years in jail● Up to 3 years of probation● A lifetime ban on possessing any weapons● Mandatory submission of a DNA sample to the Canadian DNA databank
