Assault in Olympia

AssaultBeing a crime of violence, it is important to take an assault charge very seriously. In addition to penalties like jail and fines, a conviction can prohibit you from getting jobs and even renting a place to stay. The type of assault you actually face will depend on the circumstances of your case.

Assault 2° is slightly less serious by being a class B felony, which means the maximum penalty is 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Below that is an assault 3° charge which is a class C felony.

The least serious of them all is assault 4° which is a gross misdemeanor and has a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. The prosecutor will determine what degree to charge you with based on certain key factors, including the level of harm inflicted or potentially could have been inflicted, whether there were any weapons involved, who the victim was, and what was the intend of the assault.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
