Assault charges can fall under two categories: simple or aggravated. Your
charge will be established depending on the factors involved in your offense.
Often charged as a felony, aggravated assaults are more heavily penalized
because of their serious nature. Simple assault entails an individual
willingly or knowingly injuring another person or attempting to physically
harm someone. Simple assault charges are most commonly charged as a misdemeanor
but are often teamed with charges of domestic violence which causes it
to be a felony. A simple assault is charged as a first-degree felony if
the victim was seriously injured. If you used a deadly weapon or intentionally
harmed a police office, firefighter or other authority figure, your offense
may be charged as an aggravated assault.
Your assault offense may be raised to an aggravated assault charge depending
on the following factors:
- Were there weapons involved?
- What was the status of the victim?
- What was the perpetrator's intent?
- What was the degree of the injury?
- Where did the assault take place?
What is an assault charge?
You may be charged with assault even if you did not actually injure anyone.
To be charged with assault, the prosecutor must prove that there was an
unlawful attempt made to injure another person. No bodily harm is required
to be made for you to be charged with assault. When you secure the representation
