Denver Aggravated Assault Lawyers
Which is Worse Assault or Aggravated Assault?
Under Colorado’s criminal statutes, aggravated assault involves a qualifying circumstance that makes an assault particularly harmful. An aggravated assault offense can result from using exceptionally dangerous or harmful means to commit the offense, directing an assault towards a specific class of person, or committing the offense with a specific level of criminal intent.
Examples of aggravated assault offenses include:
- Assault with a deadly weapon;
- Assault causing permanent disfigurement;
- Assault against a judge or officer of the court;
- Aggravated sexual assault; and
- Vehicular assault causing serious bodily injury.
Like other violent offenses, aggravated assault crimes carry with them the substantial likelihood of uprooting your life. In addition to lengthy prison terms and steep criminal fines, a successful conviction of an aggravated assault crime can cause lasting collateral damage to your life, such as difficulty finding gainful employment, renting property, and applying for loans.

What’s a plea bargain? Should I enter into one?A: Always consult with a Denver criminal defense attorney before entering into any pleas.
