In North Carolina, and throughout the U.S., aggravated assault is defined as an unlawful attack by one person upon another to inflict severe or aggravated bodily injury.
These violent assaults are usually accompanied by a gun, knife, weapon, or other means likely to produce death or great bodily harm.
Our experienced violent crime defense attorneys focus on providing customized legal strategies for each of our clients, so we can pursue the best outcome for their unique circumstances and criminal histories.
When aggravated assault and larceny-theft occur together, the offense falls under the category of robbery, which is also defined as a violent crime in North Carolina.
It is estimated in the U.S. that robberies occur every 13 seconds.
In North Carolina, robberies result from the physical, illegal taking, or attempted taking of another person’s property through the threat of or use of force.
These violent crimes can occur with or without a weapon, to a person, or in a place — like a home, jewelry store, convenience store, or gas station — and are always charged as felonies in North Carolina.

Forcible rape is the result of a person engaging in vaginal intercourse with another person by force and against their will. These serious North Carolina violent assault charges can carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years and require the convicted to be recorded as a sex offender on both the state and federal sex offender registries.
At the Roberts Marcilliat & Mills PLLC, our experienced violent assault attorneys in North Carolina know that there is a major difference between being accused of rape and being convicted of rape.
The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution were written to protect our clients who have been accused of a crime, so they are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Unfortunately, our violent crime defense attorneys in North Carolina know that the public does not see the difference between rape accusations, arrests, charges, and an actual conviction.
Inside our law firm, the courtroom, and everywhere we travel each day that is all we see.
