Simple Assault

Attempting or Threatening Violence with Intent to Carry it out Simple Assault

Assault is one of the most common causes of arrests in the Charlotte and Concord areas. Assault is considered a violent crime. It is defined as an attempt or threat of violence, with an actual intention to carry it out, whether or not any physical contact took place. The accused must be capable of assault in order to be charged with such an offense. There are several different levels of assault which can greatly affect the punishment if convicted. Regardless, if you are convicted of assault, you will face very severe consequences. It is a crime which is taken very seriously and it is important that you have a Charlotte criminal defense attorney or Concord criminal defense lawyer to represent you if you have been accused of committing assault.

It is a class 2 misdemeanor for any person who commits a simple assault or assault and battery. In many cases the best defense will be self-defense, which means statements to the police or anyone else could be detrimental to your case. There are several types of assault offenses that may bring about a class 1 misdemeanor charge, if the case involves:

  • a "sports official" at any sports event
  • a victim under the age of 12 years old
  • the accused being a male of 18 years of age or older and the victim being a female
  • a victim who is a school employee or school volunteer
  • a victim who is an employee or officer of the State
