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
