The offense of assault can be accomplished in several ways. The victim may be injured, threatened, or simply made contact with in an offensive manner. In any event, the case must be closely examined to determine who the first aggressor was and whether the other party was justified in taking the action he took. Generally, these assaults take place when there is a fist fight between persons. These offenses can be a class C misdemeanor, a c lass B misdemeanor, or a felony if some other conditions are met.
Generally, the aggravating factor in these cases is either serious bodily injury or the display of a deadly weapon during the commission of the offense by the offender. This offense is a felony and depending on the allegation, it can be charged as a third, second, or first degree felony.
This offense is equivalent to a simple assault, but there is a complicating factor of a family relationship. A family relationship is very broadly defined, and it can include, roommates, boyfriend/girlfriend, a sibling, or the mother and father of a child, regardless of whether they are living together or married.
As explained above, this assault does not involve a threat or an injury, but simply some form of contact that is offensive to the alleged victim. It is a class C misdemeanor, and it is handled in municipal court or a justice court.
