Los Angeles Aggravated Assault Defense Lawyers
Assault with a deadly weapon or assault which results in serious bodily harm is considered aggravated assault. These cases are much more serious and carry much longer prison sentences than simple assault cases. It is also important to note that sometimes a fistfight can be considered using a deadly weapon, or the use of a car. If someone is seriously hurt in the assault, it will most likely be charged as an aggravated assault.
