Philly Aggravated Assault Dismissed

It’s a good day for one of our clients, who had their charge of aggravated assault dismissed today!

Our client was arrested for Aggravated Assault (Title 18 Section 2702 Subsection A), a Felony of the Second Degree; Simple Assault (Title 18 Section 2701 Subsection A), a Misdemeanor of the Second Degree; Recklessly Endangering Another Person (Title 18 Section 2705); and Resisting Arrest (Title 18 Section 5104), a Misdemeanor of the Second Degree.

The Aggravated Assault provides for up to ten years of incarceration. The Simple Assault provides for up to five years of incarceration. The Recklessly Endangering Another Person (REAP) provides for up to two years in jail and finally Resisting Arrest provides for up to two years of incarceration.

Worse for the client still is when he is arrested on the case, two different counties lodge probation detainers on him which prevents him from posting bail.

Client hires Kenny, Burns & McGill to fight the case. Attorney Eileen T. Burns, of Kenny, Burns & McGill litigates the preliminary hearing on October 8, 2019 at the Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice located at 1301 Filbert Street in Philadelphia. Following an intensely fought preliminary hearing, Attorney Burns argues successfully for discharge of the Aggravated Assault charge, the Simple Assault Charge, and the Recklessly Endangering Another Person (REAP) charge. Aggravated Assault dismissed. Great result.
