Crimes of violence are always serious. These types of crime can include assault, robbery, aggravated assault, uttering threats, assault causing bodily harm, and criminal harassment.
Even the most minor allegations of violence can carry with them serious consequences including DNA orders, probation, and often incarceration if a person is found guilty.
The most common way of committing an assault is through “the intentional application of force to a person without their consent”. This can range from the act of grabbing someone to much more serious actions, like kicks, punches, and choking.
Aggravated assault is the most serious of all assault charges.
According to the Code, a person commits an assault when he applies force intentionally to that other person, directly or indirectly, without their consent. Assault is considered “aggravated” when it “wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant.”
