Assault Charges

In , an assault can be charged as a simple assault or aggravated assault. The difference between these two charges depends on many factors, including the severity of the victim’s injuries and whether a weapon was used.

Simple assault can be committed in one of three ways. Simple assault can be committed by attempting to or causing someone to suffer bodily injury, which may be caused recklessly, knowingly, or purposefully. This crime may also be committed if someone negligently injuries someone with a deadly weapon or puts someone in fear of imminent bodily injury.

Aggravated assault charges usually center on a defendant that attempts to cause or actually causes bodily injury that is done knowingly, recklessly, or purposefully. Many aggravated assault charges involve the use of deadly weapons. These weapons can be from a firearm, to a brick. Most aggravated assaults involve the infliction of an unjustified injury.
