In New Jersey, penalties for simple and aggravated assault are wide-ranging. A simple assault charge can lead to up to six months in prison and a $1,000 fine; aggravated assault charges (which usually involve a deadly weapon) or assault against a police officer or firefighter can mean even more severe penalties. Several factors are in play in charges, including lack of consent from the victim or general intent.
A South Jersey assault lawyer must not only be aware of courtroom procedures and prosecutorial methods, but should also be willing to completely go over a defendant’s case file and be prepared to go to trial. John Brennan’s experience as a former state prosecutor has taught him the importance of a defendant having strong legal representation. He has seen many cases resolved in favor of the prosecution without ever going to trial. Brennan will make sure that all of your rights under the Constitution are protected.
