Simple assault vs. aggravated assault

Assault charges are often split into two different categories: simple assault and aggravated assault. This depends on the severity of the crime and whether a weapon was involved.

Here are the differences between simple and aggravated assault:

Simple assault is a threat of violence without physical harm, including failed attempts at battery. While this is generally a misdemeanor, simple assault against a member of law enforcement is a felony.
Aggravated assault is a threat that includes the intent to seriously injure or kill someone. This includes any assault using a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault is a felony.
