Court date pending means none is set yet. As for why your boyfriend was charged - We canot read the minds of the DA. Your BF should discuss his case with his lawyer and no one else. This is not a confidential forum.


Pending means nothing has been set YET unless there is a return date.
The police can charge what they want when they want. Also PLEASE do not post any more information on a public site that could be used against your boyfriend. Here is my response from your other questions
Aggravated assault is a serious charge and I have defended these charges. The charges carries between one and twenty years in the penitentiary. Additionally, if he has prior felonies this could be enhanced to remove any possibility of parole or worse, life if he has two prior felonies and one is violent.
YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY YESTERDAY. There are defenses that can be raised an investigations that need to be made quickly. Do not hesitate these are serious charges. Judges can sentence very harshly on these charges since it is a violent crime
