Understanding Your Assault Charges

Assault is a serious offense; if convicted, you could face any number of penalties:

  • Jail Time
  • Probation
  • Community Service
  • Felony Conviction on Your Record

Depending on the specifics of your case, the crime of assault could be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. There are many ways an assault charge could be elevated to becoming a felony offense:

  • If a weapon was used during the assault: You can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon
  • If a gun or knife was used during the assault: In this case, the charges will almost always be felony charges

Regardless of what specific circumstances surround your assault charges, our firm can examine all relevant information to find the most effective way to defend you.

Learning to laugh again....
After almost 3 years fighting with my ex-wife over everything, I was recently awarded primary custody of my children, child support, and allowed to leave the state, something that I understand is not so common in North Carolina --fathers being awarded custody that is. Thanks to Kevin Hopper, the kids and I are finally moving past the nightmare and learning to laugh again.
