Barrie Aggravated Assault Lawyer
Aggravated assault is the most serious form of assault and carries with it a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison. As experienced criminal defence lawyers, we understand the jeopardy one faces when someone faces charges of this nature. If you are convicted and sentenced to the maximum prison term, your personal and professional relationships will be forever altered. A conviction for aggravated assault could result in loss of employment; revocation of professional licenses; your family, spouse and children may be stigmatized in the community and their lives may never be the same. It is critical that you fight the charge of aggravated assault with every resource at your disposal in order to win your case, clear your reputation, and get your life back to normal as soon as possible. In order to achieve those goals, the lawyers at Ted Yoannou will work zealously to get the charges against you dismissed, if possible even before you have to go to trial, and restore your good name.
Understanding the charge of aggravated assault is critical to building an appropriate defence. Aggravated assault is the most serious charge under the assault charging provisions in the Criminal Code. It is the consequences of this assault which make it so serious in nature. The injuries which flow from the assault must include maiming, wounding or endangering the life of the victim. It is important to obtain evidence about the precise nature of the alleged injuries and the Crown’s theory of the case to prepare your defence. Our role is to develop defences which, can include but are not limited to, the accidental infliction of the injuries, self-defence or other more general issues including the ability of the victim to identify you as the perpetrator. It is important that the Crown’s case is analyzed in detail and where necessary we seek out and obtain evidence to build your defence.
That's why you need a criminal defence lawyer on your side from the first moment you are arrested; the lesser the charge the judge lays, the better. As experienced and knowledgeable criminal defence lawyers, we will leave no stone unturned in gathering evidence and building a case for your defence. Our initial strategy will be to have the charges against you dismissed altogether if possible. If you have been arrested and charged with the crime of aggravated assault, call The Law Firm of Ted Yoannou, P.C. today.
