Assault & Armed Assault | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney

Assaults can be confusing crimes because there are many charging options for the prosecutor.  Some things a prosecutor considers when making a charging decision are:

  1. Your mental state or intent;
  2. The injury inflicted;
  3. Whether a weapon (or something used as a weapon) was used;
  4. The identity or class of the victim or intended victim.
