Types of Assault Charges

Arizona lists assault crimes under Chapter 12 of Title 13 of the criminal code. This area of criminal law includes:

Misdemeanor Assault

In Arizona, a simple assault is a misdemeanor charge. Depending on the level of force that is involved, the crime can range from a class 3 misdemeanor (the least serious type of criminal offense) to a class 1 misdemeanor (the most serious). If you have been accused of misdemeanor assault, you may be placed on probation, could face jail time and fines, and have to take anger management classes.

Aggravated Assault

Under certain circumstance, an assault can be "aggravated" which turns it from a misdemeanor into a felony. Depending on how serious the circumstances of the charges, aggravated assault can be anything from a class 6 felony (the least severe) to a class 2 felony (the second-most severe crimes). For a first-time aggravated assault with no prior felony convictions, the defendant is eligible for probation. However, probation is not guaranteed, and the Defendant may be sent to prison for a felony conviction.

Endangerment

Endangerment is an assault-related crime that actually does not require any physical contact. Rather, it is a vague law that involves acting recklessly to create a substantial risk of harm or imminent death. Depending on the nature of the risk, this endangerment is classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
