Defense Lawyers Can Handle Felony Assault Cases

In Connecticut, most cases of assault are considered felonies. Connecticut laws concerning assault charges are often very complex. The way that the crime was committed and the harm that was done are two of the primary factors considered when the charge is being examined.

If you are facing assault charges for being involved in a fight, this means that you may be sentenced for bringing fear to the other participant. Without even laying a hand on the other individual, you can face serious life-altering penalties. Our Hartford criminal defense attorney can assist you throughout your case to ensure you receive the proper legal representation and guidance.

Your sentence may be increased if the crime was committed against:

  • A pregnant woman
  • Toward a member of law enforcement
  • Was in conjunction with another crime

For a first-degree assault charge, you could be facing a Class B felony. That means that your fine may reach up to $15,000. If you are not sure where to turn after being arrested for a criminal assault in Connecticut, one of our Hartford criminal defense attorneys can provide you with the defense you need. Contact Carlson & Dumeer, LLC for the assistance you need by one of our lawyers!
