Consequences for These Charges

While the terms “assault” and “battery” are used interchangeably, assault is a threat of violence while battery is the actual carrying out of that threat. There is also aggravated assault, which is where a person seriously injures another or uses a weapon in an attack.

If you are convicted, you could face:

  • Prison sentences ranging from five years to life in prison
  • Fines of up to $10,000
  • Loss of your Second Amendment rights
  • A lifelong criminal record following you around

Threats made without any aggravating factors will be treated as a Class C misdemeanor with a fine of up to $500. This is increased to a Class B misdemeanor if the person makes a threat against an athlete during their performance, and to a Class A misdemeanor for threatening an elderly person. The crime becomes a felony once violence is carried out against a public servant, household member, or government official.
