Aggravated Assault and DYFS in NJ

In New Jersey, aggravated assault is when an injury is either caused purposely, knowingly, or recklessly, and a person has either attempted to to cause or has caused bodily injury on another person. Many aggravated assault cases involve the use of a deadly weapon, and the the defendant has acted under “circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.” This means that the defendant acted in a way that a result in injury was probable, not just merely possible.
