Atlanta Aggravated Assault Lawyer
What are the Penalties for Aggravated Assault in Georgia?
In Georgia, the prosecutor must prove that an assault was committed with the intent to murder, rob, or rape. Additionally, if an individual discharges a firearm from a vehicle or uses a deadly weapon to induce serious bodily injury they may be charged with aggravated assault as well.
With these specific intents and special circumstances aggravated assault is considered a felony offense that can result in up to $100,000 in fines, up to 20 years in prison, a maximum probationary period, and financial compensation for the victim of the incident.
