What is Aggravated Assault?
Aggravated assault refers to the intentional act of causing serious bodily harm to another person, often resulting in severe injuries or endangering the victim’s life. It may involve using a deadly weapon or committing assault with the intent to wound, maim, or disfigure the victim. Unlike simple assault, which involves less serious harm or no physical harm at all, aggravated assault involves more serious consequences and is treated with greater severity under the law.
Aggravated assault can be committed in various ways, such as using a weapon, causing bodily harm with intent, or committing assault in conjunction with another criminal offence. The presence of aggravating factors, such as the use of a deadly weapon or the intent to cause significant harm, distinguishes aggravated assault from other assault-related offences, like domestic violence charges.

FAQs About Aggravated Assault
The sentencing for aggravated assault in Alberta can vary depending on the case’s specific circumstances, including the severity of the injuries, the use of a deadly weapon, and the defendant’s criminal history. Aggravated assault is a serious offence, and the penalties can include substantial terms of imprisonment. It is essential to consult an experienced criminal defence lawyer who can assess the particulars of your case and provide accurate guidance on potential sentencing outcomes.
In Canada, there is no specific legal differentiation between assault and battery as there is in some other jurisdictions, such as the United States. The term “battery” is not defined in the Canadian Criminal Code, nor a legal concept in Canadian Criminal Law. Instead, it is more appropriate to consider the difference between assault and assault causing bodily harm. Assault refers to intentionally applying force to another person without their consent, while assault causing bodily harm involves intentionally causing serious physical harm or injury to another person.
Yes, self-defence may be used as a defence in an aggravated assault case if it is shown that the accused reasonably believed they were in imminent danger of bodily harm or death and the force used was necessary to protect themselves. The concept of self-defence in criminal cases can be complex, and it is vital to have an experienced criminal lawyer who can present a strong argument based on the facts of your case.
