Understanding Assault Crimes

While you do not need to actually injure a person to be charged with assault, an assault crime that does involve injury will result in much harsher penalties. Causing physical harm or impairment to another person can be charged as second degree assault, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to $2,500 in fines.

If the victim is a member of law enforcement, the charge can be upgraded to a felony and the fine doubled. When any more serious damage or injury is involved, it can be charged as felony first degree assault, which carries up to 25 years in prison.
