How To Beat Aggravated Assault Charges in TN?

In Tennessee, first time offenders of aggravated assault that have no previous convictions resulting in jail time could receive something called a judicial diversion. This would occur if the judge postpones the actual sentencing for a given period of time. During that time, the offender may need to adhere to probationary guidelines, attend counseling, or complete community service. During that set period of time and if the offender does not find themselves in any additional trouble - the judge could dismiss the charges. However, each case of assault is different so reach out to our skilled Memphis assault lawyers today.
