My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
My Ex Husband was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault (one a first degree felony and one a second degree felony), and one charge each simple assault and harrassment. He's charged by the state for hitting a volunteer fireman working an active scene, and witnessed by the entire volunteer fire department and my 11 year old son (thats another issue). The victim received stitches for a head wound caused by a flashlight. My ex was "jumped" after the "attack" but did not require hospital care.
I understand the possibility of charges being dropped or pled down.. but what are the chances that both aggravated assault charges could be dismissed? If he would be convicted, what potentially could be the punishment?
Thank you for your input.
