Assault Lawyers in Newton NJ

The term “assault” is used very broadly in criminal law. Under the New Jersey Criminal code, there is no requirement that a person actually touch another person in order to be charged with assault. In fact, simple assault is attempting to cause or actually causing bodily injury to another person. Simple assault is usually a disorderly persons offense unless committed in a fight or scuffle entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a petty disorderly persons offense. But assault can also be charged as aggravated assault if the assault causes serious bodily injury, or if the victim is a law enforcement officer, or if a deadly weapon is used. You can also be charged with assault by auto or vessel if you recklessly cause an injury to another person with a car or a boat. The bottom line is that assault charges will depend on the severity of the alleged circumstances and if you are charged with assault, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Additional potential assault and threat charges in New Jersey include terroristic threats and stalking. Terroristic threats does not require an underlying act of what people commonly understand to be “terrorism.” Rather, you can be charged with terroristic threats if you threaten to commit any crime of violence with the purpose to terrorize another person or cause public inconvenience or by threatening to kill another with the purpose to put the other in imminent fear of death. As for stalking, a person can be charged with stalking for repeatedly maintaining a visual or physical proximity to another person, repeated harassment or threats towards another person.
