Understanding the Laws Regarding Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Under Idaho law, aggravated assault is assault with a deadly weapon or instrument without intent to kill. The charges may apply to any firearm - even unloaded guns or guns so defective that they cannot be fired. Sometimes aggravated assault is charged in situations like bar fights or gang crimes. Assault and battery charges often relate to domestic violence situations as well. Drawing from experience as a former prosecutor, Attorney Gerald Bublitz knows that many domestic disputes result in questionable outcomes where the wrong person faces harsh criminal consequences.

Consequences for aggravated assault include imprisonment in the state prison for up to 5 years, a fine of up to $5000 - or both. To avoid these serious consequences, you may be able to work with your attorney to have the charges dropped or reduced to a lesser offense. If necessary, we will pursue your case all the way to jury trial to protect your rights and freedom.
