“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

The next 10 years of your life after an assault felony

On Behalf of | Feb 12, 2022 | Felonies |

Certain simple assault charges are just misdemeanors, while more dangerous acts are assault felonies that will change the rest of your life. The financial implications of a possible restitution payment could be just the beginning.

Assault with a deadly weapon is an example of a conviction that has long-lasting repercussions. To start by focusing on the short-term, you can examine the ways that an assault felony will change just the next 10 years following an accusation.

Jail Time

Aggravated assault cases in Georgia can result in up to 10 or even 20 years of jail time. If the circumstances of the crime are even more severe, an individual may even face up to 50 years in prison. In some cases, however, a strong legal case and good behavior can lead to a lighter sentence entailing probation or parole.

Probation or Parole

Individuals under an assault charge may qualify to serve out their sentence under probation or parole. Even under these circumstances, you would have the requirement to check in with a counselor or parole officer and meet other conditions. Employment and housing options may become limited with a felony on record, especially in situations that would be likely to put a convicted felon in proximity to children.

The next 10 years and beyond can be confusing and stressful for individuals under conviction of an assault felony. Reaching out to a criminal defense attorney as early as possible is vital to protecting your best interests in the event of an assault accusation.
