Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Assault Crimes
What classifies as criminal assault?
Criminal Assault is defined differently from state to state. Some states consider it assault only if physical contact is made while others state will define an attempt to injure another as criminal assault. In these states, there is no classification for attempted assault as the attempt is considered the assault. Usually verbal assault is not severe enough to fall under this jurisdiction. Raising one’s fist or approaching someone aggressively can be considered assault in certain circumstances, though.
What is the difference between Simple Assault and Aggravated Assault?
Simple assault is a less serious form of assault. These situations usually only involve minor injury or a limited threat toward violence.
Aggravated assault is considered much more serious and involves circumstances that lead to or could have resulted in much greater injury or violence. Examples of this include:
- Attempting to strike someone with a weapon or deadly object
- Shooting at or pointing a gun at a person with intent or threat to kill
- Assault with the intent to commit another felony crime such as theft or rape
- Assault that results in serious personal injury
- Assault or threatening another while concealing one’s identity
- Assault against any individual of a protected class such as a police officer, medical provider, social services worker or a disabled or elderly person.
What are the penalties for Assault Crimes?
Aggravated Assault can result in anywhere between one year and 20 years in prison depending on the circumstances and the different provisions determined by each state.
