Understanding Assault Charges

In Pennsylvania, when one person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly inflicts bodily injury on another, or even attempts or threatens to do so, it is known as simple assault. Depending on the circumstances, this offense is charged as either a second- or third-degree misdemeanor.

Crimes of assault that are more serious in nature are categorized as aggravated assault, and they are charged as felonies. An aggravated assault offense can be charged as either a first- or second-degree felony, depending upon whom the offense was committed against. If the victim was a police officer, firefighter, enforcement agent, or correctional officer performing their duties, it will be a first-degree felony.

Defending against Assault & Battery Charges

Assault and battery is a serious crime, even if it is only simple assault. It could result in significant penalties, including a hefty fine and lengthy prison sentence. If you are facing assault charges, it is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense firm as soon as possible.
