Assault Charges

Penalties for Assault

Assault is the crime of physically harming, threatening or intending to harm another individual.  Assault charges range from misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors or felonies.

Assault cases can include crimes such as:

  • Criminal Sexual Conduct
  • Domestic Assault
  • False Imprisonment
  • Aggravated Assault

Aggravated assault is the use of a deadly weapon such as a gun or knife. You can also be charged with aggravated assault if you caused great bodily harm that could have resulted in death, or caused an impairment or disability. Aggravated assault is typically a felony, and is punishable by:

  • Imprisonment
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Community service

In domestic assault cases, you may also be subject to a restraining order that will prohibit any further contact with the alleged victim.  Assault defense can include mistaken identity, self-defense, the need to defend others or other mitigating factors.
