Scottsdale Assault Defense Lawyer


An Overview of Assault Crimes in Arizona


In our state, the law separates the crime of assault into two different categories: misdemeanor assault and felony "aggravated" assault. Misdemeanor assault can involve (but is not limited to):


The intent to harm or engaging in threats to harm another

Physical contact with the intent of causing bodily injury

Causing another to be reasonably fearful that bodily injury is imminent

Felony aggravated assault involves an aggravating factor, or a factor that contributes to worsen the offense, such as:


  • Causing serious injury in another that creates a legitimate risk of death
  • Using a deadly weapon
  • Causing temporary or permanent disfigurement or impairment in the victim
  • Holding a victim against their will
  • Assault in which the perpetrator is 18 years of age or older and the victim is 15 years of age or younger
  • Taking or attempting to take the firearm of a law enforcement official
  • Assault while violating a restraining order or protection order
