Potential Consequences of Assault and Battery Convictions

The charges and potential penalties in assault and battery cases are highly dependent on factors such as the seriousness of the harm done and the type of individual you stand accused of attacking. Second-degree felony assault convictions carry penalties ranging from two to seven years’ imprisonment. Even a misdemeanor third degree assault conviction can result in a full year in prison. A sexual assault-related Class B Felony conviction can bring imprisonment upwards of 25 years. Clearly, the ramifications of these charges can be devastating, and therefore a serious defense is absolutely essential.
