Depending on the severity of the alleged assault at issue, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. While the felony charge will impact your future in a very different way, both are serious and need to be handled appropriately.

There are many aggravating factors that can raise your misdemeanor simple assault charge to a felony aggravated assault. Some of those include how much damage was done to the alleged victim if the assault was considered a hate crime, whether or not a weapon was used, and whether or not the person could defend him or herself.
You can also be charged with a felony if the person you are assaulting is a police officer. No matter what level of criminal offense you are facing, you can rely on the experience and dedication of my firm to help you through the court process.
