If you are charged with the criminal offense of assault in or around Bronx, New York, you could be facing serious penalties. Assault is defined as causing physical injury to another individual.

If you or a loved one has been accused of assault, it is imperative to secure the services of an aggressive Bronx assault lawyer, such as Attorney Kay.
Types of Assault in New York
Simple assault charges can stem from an incident in which a person did not intend to injure another but in New York, assault charges require an injury. Aggravated assault charges are typically treated as felonies.
Physical assault and sexual assault charges may be filed under different degrees depending on the circumstances according to New York State Penal Code Article 120. If your assault charges involved the use of weapons, for example, this offense can be charged as a felony in one of three different degrees. A simple assault charge can be increased if great bodily harm was done to the victim, and if the assault was against a police officer, the crime is often charged as first-degree assault.
