Honolulu Assault in the Third Degree Lawyer

Assault crimes in Hawaii are separated into three categories that range in severity. Depending on the severity of the assault, you could be charged with first, second, or third-degree assault, with first-degree assault being the most serious. First and second-degree assaults are felonies, and third-degree assaults are misdemeanors.

Assault in the third degree §707-712 (1) A person commits the offense of assault in the third degree if the person:

  • Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person; or
  • Negligently causes bodily injury to another person with a dangerous instrument.

(2) Assault in the third degree is a misdemeanor unless committed in a fight or scuffle entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a petty misdemeanor.

Assault in the State of Hawaii may be charged in three degrees. Assault in the third degree is the least serious offense. To be convicted of Assault in the third degree, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an individual intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly caused bodily injury to another person; or that this individual negligently caused bodily injury to another person with a dangerous instrument. Assault in the third degree is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine and restitution unless committed in a fight or scuffle entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a petty misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail, $1,000 fine, and restitution.

I just want to tell you about my interactions with the men and women at AOR. First and foremost, I... have never NEEDED their services. I hope to NEVER need their services. This said, I have called and written on various occasions with a question or two about this and that, and have always been treated like I'm a member of the family... of anyone in their office with whom I speak. They are professional and courteous, yes, of course, but I'm always impressed by how they don't rush me off the phone, how they let me talk (which may take me a few minutes to explain what I'm looking to find out and to get the point I finally ask my question) and, before concluding our call, they always ask if I've gotten the exact information I wanted -- that is, the reason for my calling in the first place has been addressed to my satisfaction. I'm so sick and tired of paying money to people, then needing to talk to them at some point, and feeling like I'm inconveniencing them; I feel like "Um, you realize I'm paying you money to provide me services/information, right?" Not with Attorneys on Retainer. Honest to God, it is such a relief, to me personally, that I can say "Talk to my attorney" or "I'll be in touch with my attorney" or "I'll have my attorney call you," as a situation may warrant, and have it be true... knowing that AOR has my back. They've even told me, very specifically, if I'm ever in doubt as to whether call the office number or call the emergency number, just use the latter to be safe... stressing to me that they don't want me to worry about which number to call, that if I feel I need some kind of legal help, to just call them.I must say, I've been a member of other organizations (and still am, in a few cases) that say they offer legal help to people who have been involved in a shooting. I have dropped some of them already and am letting the other memberships expire by not renewing. There are just SO MANY excellent, TRULY excellent reasons to sign on with AOR, and an equal number of reasons why you shouldn't waste your money with other organizations. If you've been researching the topic of legal help and self-defense shootings, please, PLEASE, do yourself a favor and give a REALLY HARD LOOK at Attorneys on Retainer. I'm being very, very sincere when I say you aren't likely to ever have any regrets if you hire them.read more

I recently contacted Attorneys for Freedom to provide services for a set aside from a past felony... conviction.Everyone was extremely helpful and informative! Rachel & Tori were amazing, they kept me up to date on what was going on with my case as well as any part that I could play to benefit the prosses. From my very first call they kept me informed of all my options. They were prompt in answering any and all questions I had.Even living all the way up in Idaho they were very easy to work with, our entire business was conducted by phone & email. They handled everything!!I would absolutely recommend AFF, they actually give attorneys a good name.Chris A.read more
