Assault Against Peace Officer

Assault is usually a class B misdemeanor, but when committed against a peace officer (e.g., police) it becomes a more serious offense. If you assault a peace officer, you will be charged with a class A misdemeanor, which carries significant jail time. If you have done this before, you will be charged with a third-degree felony.

Don’t believe the prosecutor and police will go easy on you in these cases. They will not. Police are considered practically family, and they treat these cases like you assault a family member. They will not back down. This is why you need a Utah assault attorney to defend you.

Brown Law will sit down with you during your free initial consultation and discuss your cas. We will determine if you knew the officer was, in fact, an officer at the time of the assault. We will also gather facts and discover whether the officer was acting within his or her scope of authority at the time of the incident. When we find weaknesses in the government’s case, we will attack them and defend your freedom.
