Types of Assault Charges

A second-degree assault is charged when it is believed the suspect knowingly or recklessly caused a serious bodily injury to another person (this is a Class B felony). First-degree assault is charged when it is believed the accused purposefully or knowingly caused serious bodily injury to another by means of a deadly weapon or when you knowingly or recklessly cause serious bodily injury to a person under 13 years of age (this is a Class A felony). Other less serious forms of assault are charged as a misdemeanor.

Depending on which type of charge you face, you can expect the following penalties:

  • A Class A misdemeanor: This charge is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $2000 fine.
  • A Class B felony: This charge is punishable by up to seven years in prison and a $4000 fine.
  • A Class A felony: This charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a $4000 fine.

If you are convicted of assault, you can also lose the right to carry or possess a firearm. When you face such serious charges that can gravely affect your future, you need to secure legal representation immediately.
