Defense Attorney for Charges of Assault with a Deadly Weapon
At my Boise, Idaho, law firm — Bublitz Law, P.C. — I am well equipped to handle even the most serious charges, including aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon. I represent people facing these charges in Idaho state courts.
The Law on Assault With a Deadly Weapon
Under Idaho law, aggravated assault is assault with a deadly weapon or instrument without intent to kill. The charges may apply to any firearm — even unloaded guns or guns so defective that they cannot be fired. Sometimes aggravated assault is charged in situations like bar fights or gang crimes.
Assault and battery charges often relate to domestic violence situations as well. From my experience as a former prosecutor, I know that many domestic disputes result in questionable outcomes where the wrong person faces harsh criminal consequences.
Consequences for aggravated assault include imprisonment in the state prison for up to five years or a fine of up to $5000 — or both. To avoid these serious consequences, you may be able to work with your attorney to have the charges dropped or reduced to a lesser offense. If necessary, I will pursue your case all the way to jury trial if necessary to protect your rights and freedom.
I know that many of my clients are good people who simply made a mistake or were wrongly accused. They face serious consequences that can put their jobs and their families in jeopardy. I understand that they deserve an effective defense that takes all the details into account.
