On November 12, 2012, a Mesa woman allegedly ran over her husband because he didn’t vote. Apparently, the couple got into an argument in a parking lot – one thing led to another and the woman got into her jeep and began chasing her husband. Her husband was rushed to the hospital and is now in critical condition. The woman has been charged with aggravated assault.Because we are a premier personal injury and criminal defense law firm, there are two things I would like to discuss about this incident. What started as a domestic argument quickly got out of hand and now the woman is facing a very serious felony. A person commits aggravated assault if the person causes serious physical injury to another or if the person uses a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument. This type of aggravated assault is a class 3 felony, which carries a presumptive sentence of 2.5 years in prison along with probation and fines.
