Q: My son is being charged w/ Aggravated Assault due to being a witness to a crime that police think he knows the person.
My son went forth on the morning of an incident as a witness to tell the police what he saw voluntarily. They don't believe that my son was in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are assuming he knows the person just because he got away alive. What are our rights?
There is a difference in being questioned by the police and being charged. It is important to note that if your son has not been formally charged, he has no obligation to meet with the police. Considering the circumstances, it is best to contact an attorney who can assist you.
We wish you well.

If your son is charged with aggravated assault, he needs an attorney. It’s one thing to be charged with a crime. It’s much worse to be convicted.
He has many rights... the right to sing the blues, the right to cable tv, & the right to salt & vinegar potato chips.
