Q: Good morning I was charged with 3rd degree aggravated assault charge and no criminal records ever what can happen
A: Where did this happen (what County)? It is a Class A Misdemeanor (crime) punishable by up to 1 year in jail. Consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney for proper representation.
A: I agree, it's important to know where you are going to appear, and in which court (county, city, town, or village court). It will also depend upon the exact nature of the offense, what exactly took place. I've had cases like this reduced to disorderly conduct, or dismissed, but it really does depend upon what happened. Call or email if you want to discuss further, or contact an attorney of your choosing.
In general, the worst case scenario is no longer than one year in a local jail, with no priors, probation is more likely, but that really depends upon what the "aggravating" factor is.
