What are the penalties for assault?

Like any violent crime, assault carries with it severe penalties and repercussions. You may think that you have to inflict physical injury in order to be charged with assault, but that is not always the case. An officer can arrest you for assault even if you never touched a person. Verbal threats alone can result in a charge and conviction, which means even your empty threats could land you in jail. You cannot afford to go through this time alone; our firm is here to provide the counsel you need.

Misdemeanor assault charges are the most common in New York and include the following penalties:

  • Up to 364 days in jail or other form detention
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • A criminal record and damaged professional reputation
  • Possible restitution for the victim

If there is a weapon involved in the incident, you could be facing aggravated assault charges, which carries much great penalties and punishment. No matter what your situation is, you need a strong and aggressive defense behind you.
