Understanding Aggravated Assault
In New Jersey, there are both simple assault and aggravated assault charges that one can face. The aggravated assault charges are naturally more severe as they tend to involve premeditated criminal acts, extreme disregard for human safety or life, or assault of especially fragile individuals.
Penalties and fines for aggravated assault are generally more severe than those of simple assault due to the crime being more violent. Aggravated assault falls under a second-, third- or fourth-degree crime and is categorized into one of the three depending on how serious the crime is, how seriously harmed the victim is, who the victim is, etc.
