Assault Put a High Caliber Military Defense Attorney on Your Side

Nationwide Defense for Assault Charges

What is Military Assault?

Under Article 128 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), assault is a serious offense that may be punishable by court-martial.

Penalties for Military Assault

Depending upon the circumstances of the offense itself, the targeted victim, whether a weapon was used and the nature of the attack, a service member convicted of assault by court-martial may face a minimum of 3 months of confinement and forfeiture of 2/3 of pay for three months.

Maximum penalties, in extreme cases, may include a dishonorable discharge and confinement for up to 10 years.

With over thirty years' experience in criminal law, Attorney Guy L. Womack has the experience and knowledge to appropriately defend service members from assault charges in court-martial proceedings. With his extensive familiarity with the UCMJ, attorney Womack and his staff can assist you in confronting this matter head-on and in avoiding a conviction and serious penalties. Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C. represents clients in court-martial proceedings and administrative discharge hearings both nationwide and internationally.

Understanding the Charges Against You

Assault is defined as the attempt or threat of bodily harm to another person through the use of force or violence. Whether or not this attempt is successful or the threat is carried out, an individual may face assault charges.

Assault with a dangerous weapon or with the intent of causing death or serious bodily harm may constitute a more serious offense of aggravated assault, resulting in enhanced penalties. Committing assault and intentionally inflicting serious bodily harm is another form of aggravated assault.

Accused of Assault? Consult a Military Attorney

As a service member, you have the right to legal counsel if you are facing assault charges under the UCMJ. By working with a lawyer experienced with court-martial proceedings, you have the opportunity to avoid confinement and other serious penalties.

If you are a member of the military and have been accused of assault, contact a military criminal defense attorney from Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C. today for a free consultation.
