Aggravated Assault legal definition of Aggravated Assault
An act of violence, especially in the moment that it occurs is a very simple incident. Violence is never tolerated in Canada, but the degree to which it is condemned or punished varies quite a lot. So how does it work? Assault is one of the more serious violations a Canadian can commit, and is classified as a criminal act, which means it will be tried in court. If a conviction is secured, it may result in a criminal record, complete with fingerprint records and other legal processing. This is a very important point to note; the threat of assault is all that is required for an assault charge to be legally given. Actual injury does NOT have to occur in order for an assault charge to occur.
