Classification of Assault Charges

Assault is charged according to the severity of the victim's injuries, whether a deadly weapon was used, whether an individual assaulted with intent, and other factors.

Assault can be charged as:

  • First degree assault: If you intended to cause harm to a victim and caused serious bodily injuries death, or if a firearm was used during the crime
  • Second degree assault: If you intentionally inflicted bodily harm or used a deadly weapon
  • Third degree assault: If you caused bodily harm through criminal negligence (contrasted with intent), or if you assaulted a firefighter, police officer, nurse, or health provider.
  • Fourth degree assault: If you committed assault that is not severe enough to fit into 1st through 3rd degree categories of assault.
