VIOLENT OFFENCES & ASSAULT LAWYERS SYDNEY
ASSAULT & VIOLENT OFFENCES
Various assaults are usually governed by the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). Assaults can be divided into two categories: common assault & aggravated assault.
Common assaults fall under s 61 of the Crimes Act 1900 and are usually dealt with by a Local Court; however, the prosecution can elect to have them dealt with in the District Court when more serious. A common assault is any act by which a person intentionally or recklessly causes another to apprehend immediate and unlawful violence, or strikes, touches or applies force to another, without legal justification. It can be relatively minor conduct and does not necessarily need to involve physical contact.
Aggravated assault is a term used to cover a wide range of serious assault offences. Sections 32 to 54 of the Crimes Act 1900 deal with most of the aggravated assault offences. These assaults are categorised by the degree of injury that is caused.
We have experience in defending these charges, negotiating plea deals and dealing with sentences (including avoiding convictions) for these types of offences.
No matter what the degree, we are addicted to not only winning or achieving the best plea deal possible (depending on the case and your instructions), but doing it in the quickest, cheapest, and most impressive way possible.
