What is Felony Assault?

The general difference in felony assault and misdemeanor assault can arise from two different basis: 

1. If you use a gun or other deadly weapon, generally the assault is increased to felony level.  Guns, handguns, rifles, and shotguns are always considered deadly weapons. Often, other items such as a motor vehicle, Chinese throwing stars, nunchaks, nightstick, baseball bats and other can also be considered as deadly weapons.

2. If the victim suffers serious injury, the charge can be increased to felony level.  The definition of "serious physical injury" varies by state. In Kentucky, it requires that the victim have an injury with a permanent disfigurement, loss of a bodily organ, prolonged impairment of health or likely to cause death.

If you have been charged with ANY assault charge, you should hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.  Felony charges are even more serious and often end in substantial incarceration if convicted.  For a consultation in Kentucky, call Michael Bouldin at Bouldin Law Firm at 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) or email [email protected]
