At The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC, we defend against all types of assault, including:

  • Aggravated assault: Aggravated assault is assault that results in serious bodily injury to the victim or that involves the use of a deadly weapon. It is a second-degree felony.
  • Sexual assault: This type of assault is sexual in nature, including rape and molestation. It is a second-degree felony. Aggravated sexual assault is a first-degree felony.
