When is assault a felony offense?

If a deadly weapon is used in the commission of the assault, or the assault results in severe bodily harm, it is likely that you will be charged with aggravated assault, which is a felony offense. A simple assault can also be charged as a felony if the alleged victim was a:

  • Security guard
  • Police
  • Public servant
  • Informant
  • Emergency service worker
  • Government contractor
