Understanding Assault Charges
In Michigan, assault crimes are among the most common causes of arrest. Even the smallest fight can result in assault charges.
There are two types of assault that are charged as misdemeanors: simple assault and aggravated assault. Simple assault involves intentionally threatening or causing injury to another person. A person is charged with aggravated assault when the assault results in serious physical injuries. To qualify as aggravated assault, the victim’s injuries must require immediate medical treatment or cause disfigurement, impairment of health, or impairment of a body part.
The penalties for each type of misdemeanor assault include:
- Simple assault – up to 93 days in jail and a maximum fine of $500
- Aggravated assault – a maximum jail sentence of four years and a fine of up to $2,000
When the offender uses a deadly weapon, such as a gun, knife, or brass knuckles, to carry out the assault, the result is felonious assault. The act of pointing a gun or a knife at someone in such a way that they believe the weapon could harm them can also be charged as a felony.
Felonious assault carries the harshest penalties, including:
- Up to four years in jail
- A maximum fine of $6,000
- Community service for up to 150 hours
