Aggravated assault is a crime in which a person illegally attempts to and is able to commit violence against another individual. Listed below are some examples of crimes which may constitute assault:
If you are convicted of aggravated assault in the above circumstances, you face 1-20 years in prison.
Some aggravating circumstances could potentially change the sentence in your assault case.
Do you know of anyone that has recived the same charges and recived probation or anything less then prison time?
I personally do not know of anyone. If there are mitigating factors to justify the gun being pulled, he may be able to get a plea bargain. Once his attorney looks into the facts surrounding his case, he will get a better idea of what he is facing as a sentence.
