Northwestern Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney for Assault Charges

Criminal Defense Attorney: Help With Assault Charges

Assault charges usually break down into three categories: simple assaults, aggravated assaults, and sexual assaults. Simple assaults, including simply assaults by mutual affray (fighting), are misdemeanors which carry potential jail time. These include misunderstandings that escalate into punching or hitting and bar fights. These cases can become complex because of the involvement of alcohol. Harassment, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and terroristic threats are also misdemeanors. Aggravated Assaults are felonies that carry very stiff penalties usually including state prison time.

Sexual Assault, Statutory Sexual Assault, and Rape are very serious charges and can involve very lengthy mandatory minimum sentences. Furthermore, many of these cases trigger the provisions of Megan's Law, which requires registration with the Pennsylvania State Police. You need a lawyer who has tried these cases before. As former Assistant District Attorneys we have tried to verdict countless of these cases.

Taylor and Taylor also represents clients accused of Homicide/Manslaughter. Those facing Homicide charges are confronting the full power of the Commonwealth. Prosecutors aggressively pursue convictions in these cases and the consequences of a guilty verdict can mean life in prison. Don't go it alone. It is critical to have skilled legal counsel by your side from the very beginning of your case.
