Assault Charges Carry Harsh Penalties In Missouri
In Missouri, you’ll find that assault crimes are no laughing matter and that the Prosecutors and Judges across the State and in St. Louis classify assault as a violent crime. Assault in the 1st degree is classified as either a class A or class B felony, so if you’re convicted you could face harsh penalties as well as have a felony on your record for the rest of your life. A class A felony would be the most severe assault charge and it would be the result of the victim being hurt in the assault. If the victim wasn’t hurt during the assault then it’s likely you will be dealing with a class B felony. If you’re found guilty of a class A felony 1st-degree assault in Missouri you could be facing 10-30 years in prison. For a class B you could be facing 5-15 years in prison. Either way, it’s going to be critical for you to hire the right legal representation that can build an effective defense that mitigates some of the harsh penalties you could be facing. Chris Combs and the Combs Law Group is ready to take on that challenge for you. We will fight tooth and nail to reduce the fines and penalties handed down by the Judge and Prosecutors. We work aggressively to build a legal strategy that highlights and mitigating circumstances from your case. We also will look to utilize diversion programs, like anger management classes, to negotiate optimal plea agreements with the Prosecutors. If permitted, we try to highlight the fact that you’re a good person who made a bad mistake. Call us today and we’ll be glad to discuss your case with you.
1st degree assault vs 2nd degree assault
As stated above an assault in the 1st degree is typically a class A or class B felony while a 2nd-degree assault is a class C felony. With a 2nd degree assault, the Prosecutor has to meet certain requirements of proof otherwise it’s a 1st-degree assault. If you’ve been charged with either a 1st-degree or 2nd-degree assault it’s likely you could be facing serious prison time if you don’t mount a serious defense to your charges. That’s why we urge you to call Chris Combs and the Combs Law Group today. As a top St. Louis criminal defense lawyer, Chris Combs will put his knowledge and experience to work for you.
