The Maximum Penalties Are Severe
An assault conviction can send you to jail, but first- and second-degree assault convictions will result in prison sentences:
First-degree assault with a firearm or intent to cause serious physical injury or death with assault is a felony with a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.
Second-degree assault/attempted battery or intent to frighten a person with threat of offensive physical contact or harm is a misdemeanor with a maximum prison sentence of 10 years.
All criminal offenses involving the use of a weapon, whether it is a firearm, knife or bat, will be subject to greatly increased penalties. An experienced defense attorney will work to reduce the charges and penalties to ensure you are not overcharged for a crime you did not commit.
