The announcement details what clients can expect from the Jaksa legal team’s approach to aggravated assault cases. The team of criminal lawyers challenges the Crown’s ability to meet their burden of proof for this most serious of assault charges. For young clients involved in such incidents, William Jaksa brings fastidious attention to every detail of the case, gathering all of the available evidence and establishing the facts to mount the most effective defence.

Aggravated assault is second only to murder in terms of serious violent crimes in Canada. These offences wound, maim, disfigure, or endanger the life of the complainant. A conviction rests on the assault having been committed intentionally and with objective foresight that the attack would subject the victim to serious injury. Canada’s definition of aggravated assault is found in section 268(1) of the Criminal Code, carrying a maximum penalty of 14 years.

Mr. Jaksa makes it difficult for the Crown to prove the intentional application of force, directly or indirectly, upon a person without their consent. The injuries caused must be significant and endured for some time. These include a broken jaw, orbital bone, or nose as well as any notable breaking or cutting of the skin. Jaksa helps to differentiate between assault causing bodily harm and aggravated assault through a balanced assessment of the injuries caused.

As an experienced criminal lawyer, Jaksa brings expertise in assembling a robust defence for these cases. Common approaches for these include reasonable force used in self-defence, defence of property, defence of another person, and reflexive action – an involuntary response over which the accused had no control. In all cases, an air of reality must be present in the defence’s case. Learn more at
