Assault in Northern KY

Assault in Kentucky can be a misdemeanor or felony charge.  If a dangerous ordinance or deadly weapon is involved, the charge is generally Assault 2nd, which carries 5-10 year prison sentence on a class C felony.  If serious physical injury occurs, the same class C felony is charged.  If both serious physical injury and deadly weapon are involved, then the charge is a class A felony, punishable by 10-20 years. A simple assault is a misdemeanor, but don't let the name fool you.  A misdemeanor is punishable by up to $500 fine, court costs, restitution and up to 12 months in county jail.  Anyone that doesn't think that a year in county jail is serious has not spent much time incarcerated.  You should always hire an attorney if you are facing any type of assault charges. The legal fees for assault vary greatly depending on a number of factors.  Those include: seriousness of charges, complexity of the case, number of fact and expert witnesses who may testify, likelihood of negotiated plea deal, and nature of the injury to the victim.  Also involved are the nature of the defenses, whether self-defense or alibi witness. Assaults are found in the Kentucky Revised Code under sections KRS Chapter 508.   More information can be found on some of my prior posts including: *  Penalty for Assault * Difference between Assault and Domestic Violence * Self Defense and Stand Your Ground  * Assault 1, 2, 3 and 4 Definitions  If you have been charged with Assault in Northern Kentucky and need advice, contact Michael Bouldin at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453.
