Assault Charges NSW
There are a number of forms of assault in the criminal law, including but not limited to simple assault, sexual assault, assault with a weapon and aggravated assault.
Assault, which is defined as the direct infliction of injury, force or violence upon a person, is the crime Australians face the highest risk of victimisation from, out of all crimes against the person. Males, aged between 15 and 24 years have the highest rate of victimisation, and females between 15 and 19 follow closely behind. Young males are most likely to be targeted by a stranger, whilst females are more likely to be assaulted by a family member.
The circumstances surrounding an assault are usually very personal, so it is imperative that you seek legal advice if you have been charged with assault.
