Aggravated assault can be found in section 268(1) of the Canadian Criminal Code. It reads, aggravated assault is committed by anyone who wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant (plaintiff). The punishment for aggravated assault is guilty of an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 14-years.
Physical assault involves touching without consent or any unwanted touching. A criminal assault lawyer may be able to invoke self-defense as Saskatchewan’s assault laws allow some marginal accommodation for the circumstances of the situation. You don’t want these charges on your criminal record; we’ll do everything we can to help you defend your name in court.
Penalties for Criminal Assault Charges?
It is critical that you let our aggravated assault lawyers prepare your case for trial because the cost of losing your case is a possible 14-years in prison. A criminal record will follow you wherever you go, although, once you have violent crime or a weapons charge on your record, it’s unlikely you will be going anywhere outside of Canada ever again.
