Boise Aggravated Assault Attorney

Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Aggravated assault is a felony in Idaho. You may also be charged with third degree aggravated assault if you purposely or knowingly cause bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon. All that is required is an intent to engage in the conduct and not necessarily to cause a bodily injury.

Our law firm, Bublitz Law, P.C. is well equipped to handle even the most serious charges, including aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon. The defense attorneys from our firm represent people facing these charges in Idaho state courts.

At Bublitz Law, P.C. we know that many of our clients are good people who simply made a mistake or were wrongly accused. They face serious consequences that can put their jobs and their families in jeopardy. We understand that they deserve an effective defense that takes all the details into account.

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.
