Assault is a serious class of criminal offense.
Even for relatively minor cases, an assault conviction can mean a permanent criminal record, which can impact everything from an individual’s ability to find a job to housing access, and penalties such as jail time or fines. In more serious circumstances, charges may result in lengthy prison sentences or even the death penalty.
