What is an Assault?
- A “simple” assault occurs if the assault did not result in any physical harm or injury. You are accused of simply threatening someone or touching the victim in a way that they considered to be offensive or provocative.
- An assault is an offense that causes bodily injury. If pain is felt by the victim this is an assault.
- An aggravated assault occurs when the victim suffers severe bodily harm or injury and/or a deadly weapon was used or shown during the commission of the assault.
