Regardless of degree, an assault charge can have a very serious impact on your present as well as your future. An assault charge, sometimes referred to as attempted battery is defined as an individual intentionally acting in a threatening, aggressive manner that instills fear in another individual. This also includes attempting to physically harm another.
This includes situations such as: stalking, domestic violence, aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon, assault against school employees or assault against an office of the law.
An assault charge can be tried and convicted as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity of the situation and the charges pressed by the alleged victim.
An assault conviction, appearing on your permanent record can make it difficult to find future employment or even invalidate certain privileges. This is especially true for cases involving felony battery or domestic violence.
