Confronting Assault Charges
Charges of criminal assault do not require contact with the alleged victim. Simply the presence of a threat is enough for someone to file charges against you. That is because when it comes to assault, Kentucky law and prosecutors believe that the intent is much more important than the act of assault.
Assault charges are generally divided into two categories:
- Simple assault — This type of assault, or assault in the fourth degree, is a misdemeanor. It involves intentional or reckless harmful acts that could cause someone injury.
- Aggravated assault — This type of felony assault generally includes assault in the first and second degrees. It is still based on the intent to cause someone physical harm, but usually involves the use of a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault also includes assault in the third degree, which involves the intent to cause physical harm to a state, city or federal official.
The penalties for either form of assault vary depending on each individual situation. They could involve paying hefty fines or serving time in prison.
That is why it is important to contact the Hoover and Hurt Law Offices as soon as possible. We strive to protect your rights and minimize consequences to preserve your future.
