Assault is any intentional conduct that reasonably causes a person to feel afraid of impending violence.

Aggravated Assault is a serious crime which can carry significant penalties, including prison time. Depending on the facts of your case, a conviction can result in a sentence as a Class A Misdemeanor, Class 3 felony, or in some cases a Class 4 felony.
