ASSAULT. A simple assault can be charged when a person is alleged to have harmed or attempted to cause harm to another person. You don’t actually have to hurt them. A simple assault also can be charged where the person was seriously injured and the police believe you were reckless in your conduct. If any of the above involved a police officer as a victim, the conduct becomes a felony.

FELONIOUS ASSAULT. An assault can be charged as a felony when the harm to the person is serious and knowingly caused. It can also be a felony where the harm was not serious, but was caused with the use of a weapon.

DEFENDING ASSAULT TYPE CASES. Our Akron Criminal Defense team will help you defend you case. These can be difficult because they involve a human victim.
