A: Not sure I see any question in what you wrote. You are permitted to defend yourself and third parties from imminent violent crimes against you. Aggravated assault is a serious offense, and self defense is not a simple analysis, you really should take any concerns about your case to your lawyer. If you are not comfortable with your current lawyer, contact an attorney directly to set up a consultation to talk about your case confidentially.
