In Victoria, assault offences are very broad with many attracting significant periods of custody. If you have been charged with one of the following offences, you need to contact our Melbourne Criminal Lawyers promptly.
Intentionally Causing Serious Injury;
Intentionally or Recklessly Causing Injury;
Recklessly Causing Serious Injury;
Causing Serious Injury Intentionally in circumstances of Gross Violence;
Causing Serious Injury Recklessly in Circumstances of Gross Violence;
Common Assault (also called Unlawful Assault);
Murder and Manslaughter.
In mitigating these types of charges, the Court will consider a number of factors, including your age, whether you have a history for similar offences, the circumstances surrounding the offence and your role in the offending behaviour.
In these types of matters, it’s invariably the case that they can be coupled with other types of offences, increasing the severity of them.
Treat these charges as very serious and seek advice from only experienced criminal lawyers with strong, proven expertise. Our Melbourne Criminal Lawyers can talk with you today.
