An assault charge is serious and can affect a person’s criminal record for life. Yet, there are many defenses to assault and often an assault charge can be successfully defended through litigation or through trial. Getting an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side is the first step toward securing a successful case outcome and protecting your rights.
The worst thing you can do is walk into court without an attorney and plead guilty to an assault. Remember this: An assault constitutes a criminal conviction. This can have serious impact on your ability to get a job, a home, a loan, or attend school. Hiring an experienced Minneapolis assault attorney is the best first step in protecting your future, your rights and your freedom.
There are various degrees of assault charges in Minnesota. The most serious kind of assault is an assault in the first-degree. The potential punishment for this level of offense is up to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $30,000.
The least serious classification of an assault is an assault in the fifth degree. Yet, even a fifth-degree assault is a misdemeanor that can permanently damage a person’s criminal record and may entail up to 90 days in jail and/or $1000 fine.
Further, if a person is repeatedly charged with and convicted of fifth-degree assault, the would-be misdemeanor gets enhanced to a felony. An assault attorney will help you navigate the assault statute and explain the law and the possible defenses to you.
