Assault Defense Lawyer

Assault is defined as causing or attempting to cause bodily injury to another individual, including an unborn child, and is considered to be a crime of violence. The victim of the situation is often harmed or placed in the imminent fear of being harmed.

Simple assault is a first degree misdemeanor. It is often punishable with up to 6 months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Vehicular assault and aggravated vehicular assault may be charged as a misdemeanor if the driver was merely negligent. Generally, there is no mandatory jail time for cases like these. If the driver was breaking any form of the law, whether speeding or driving under the influence, the offense may be charged as a felony causing the consequences to become more severe.


When Does Assault Become A Felony?


Assault becomes a felony under certain conditions, such as in cases of injury to police officers or public servants, or attempting to cause injury with a deadly weapon. Felonious assault is a more serious crime than assault or aggravated assault. It may be charged when serious harm is caused and / or when committed with a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault is generally charged as a fourth-degree felony as it is only slightly less severe than a felonious assault. It is punishable by 18 months to 6 years in prison and fines up to $5,000. Potential penalties for a second-degree felony assault include 2 to 8 years in prison and fines up to $20,000.
