- For first degree felony assault in Alabama, maximum penalties are 20 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
- Penalties for Assault Crimes can be even more severe for a second felony conviction, or assault with a deadly weapon. If you have been charged with assault, you are in serious need of a solid criminal defense, and need a criminal defense lawyer to defend your charges.

What evidence is used in an assault case?
In assault cases, the arresting officer is typically not present on the scene at the time that the assault related incident occurred. The officer relies on the testimony of the alleged victim, witnesses, and the information provided in the incident report. This information might not be entirely accurate. The altercation (when assault charges occurred) may have been a matter of self-defense. The account of the incident could be distorted and one-sided, as sometimes occurs in heated situations that lead to an assault charge. It is imperative that you retain a criminal defense attorney that can help protect your best interests.
