Criminal Defense Lawyers In Pennsylvania
A person may be charged with aggravated assault in Pennsylvania if he or she has attempted to cause, or has actually caused, serious bodily injury to another person. To obtain a conviction, the prosecution must prove that the defendant acted with intent, knowledge or reckless indifference to the value of human life [Section 2702 of the Pennsylvania Criminal Code].
Special laws apply in cases involving threats or attacks against law enforcement officials. Even threatening an officer, without actual contact, could result in a first-degree felony charge. Aggravated assault against other individuals is generally a second-degree felony charge.
