I was wondering if you can get charged for being an "assessory," to aggravated assault?

Yes, people can be charged as accessory's to any crime if they helped the offender to avoid arrest, or punishment (some exceptions apply to relatives). Accessory is it's own charge and the severity depends on the underlying crime. You can also be charged as a "principle" to a crime if you aid help the offense to be committed (i.e. the driver in a bank robbery is guilty of the same crime as the person who robs the bank).
