What Kinds of Charges am I Facing?
Assault charges are divided into two categories, simple and aggravated. Arizona defines “simple assault” as knowingly causing another person physical injury, or touching them in an attempt to insult, injure, or provoke. Charges can be elevated to aggravated assault if the crime meets any number of several criteria.
You may be facing aggravated assault charges if any of the following are true:
- Serious disfigurement or physical injuries were sustained.
- Restraints were used on the assault victim.
- A deadly weapon was used to threaten physical injury.
- A legal adult (aged 18 or older) committed assault on a child under the age of 15.
- The assault involved a firefighter, police officer, prosecutor, teacher, prison guard, or healthcare provider.
Can you go to Jail for a Misdemeanor Assault Charge?

Possible penalties for misdemeanor assault include:
- Six months, four months or 30 days imprisonment
