Assault charges are taken seriously by the court, and they can come with serious consequences if convicted: jail time, hefty fines and restitution fees, as well as a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. The criminal defence lawyers at Andrews Benko & Associates can help defend you against these charges.
Assault is a broad term that covers a range of violent offences in Saskatchewan. A common (or simple) assault is the least severe of all assault charges and comes with lower penalties if convicted than other assault charges. The penalties become far more severe as the circumstances of the assault offence become more violent or have larger consequences. An assault conviction can lead to serious penalties, including fines, jail time, probation, weapons restrictions and orders prohibiting contact with victims or witnesses involved in your case.
