As a former Stillwater and Cottage Grove city attorney and former assistant Washington County prosecutor, attorney Eric Thole knows the steps prosecutors will likely take to build your case. By taking proactive steps, Mr. Thole strives to keep his clients two steps ahead.

Accused Of Aggravated Assault In Washington County, Hudson Or Beyond?

In Minnesota, threatening bodily injury with a weapon is a felony offense. If convicted, you face mandatory jail sentences, up to seven years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. If substantial bodily harm resulted, penalties are increased to $20,000 and you face up to 10 years in prison.

A deadly weapon includes:

  • Guns
  • Knives
  • Fire
  • Baseball bats
  • Club
  • Any other blunt object that can be used to inflict serious bodily injury

In addition to the fines and prison time, there are many social consequences associated with a guilty verdict. Convicted felons are stripped of many civil rights, such as the right to vote and the right to possess firearms, and find it difficult to obtain housing and get a job.

At the Thole Law Firm, attorney Thole builds sound criminal defense campaigns that protect clients’ rights, freedom and future. He investigates the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault and arrest to identify defenses – such as self-defense – that may show clients lacked the requisite intent, and ensure clients’ constitutional rights were not violated. If police lacked probable cause during arrest, or failed to properly administer Miranda warnings, he will fight to have clients’ charges thrown out.
