What Is Aggravated Assault?

An assault charge may be elevated to aggravated assault if the alleged victim suffered a serious bodily injury or if the person being charged used or carried a deadly weapon when they allegedly committed the assault. Serious bodily injuries may include any form of bodily harm that created a substantial risk of death or actually led to a person's death, as well as injuries that led to permanent disfigurement, the loss of a body part, or impairment to an organ or other part of the body. Deadly weapons may include firearms or any other objects or tools that are designed to inflict serious bodily injuries or death.

In most cases, aggravated assault is charged as a second-degree felony, and penalties may include a maximum fine of $10,000 and between 2 and 20 years of jail time. Aggravated assault charges may be elevated to a first-degree felony in family violence cases where a deadly weapon was used to inflict serious bodily injury, when assault was allegedly committed against a public servant, when an offense allegedly occurred as retaliation against a witness or informant, or when a person was in a motor vehicle and allegedly discharged a firearm and caused serious bodily harm to another person. Penalties for a first-degree felony include between 5 and 99 years of jail time, as well as a maximum fine of $10,000.
