Penalties You Will Face if Convicted
The elements of an aggravated assault case generally involve either an individual intentionally causing bodily harm to another person or an individual threatening that person with bodily harm. In addition, the defendant must have either used a deadly weapon or inflicted injuries. This crime is filed either as a first or second degree felony. Any felony charge is serious; if convicted, your life will never be the same.
At trial, the court may take into account the relationship of the defendant to the victim and whether the victim is a public servant or security officer, as well as the age of the alleged victim. Second degree felonies can result in anywhere from 2 to 20 years of prison time and a potential fine of up to $10,000, while first degree felonies can carry 5 to 99 years in prison and a potential fine of up to $10,000.
