In Utah, assault is a very common crime. People fight. It’s part of life. Unfortunately, another part of life is being charged with assault. And surprisingly enough, there are three types of assault:
- An attempt to unlawfully harm another person.
- A threat, coupled with a show of immediate violence, to harm another person.
- Someone using unlawful violence that causes bodily injury or a substantial risk of bodily injury to another person.
Depending on the severity of the incident (and depending on whether the assault victim was pregnant), assault is either a class B or A misdemeanor. Both charges are actually pretty serious and carry potential heavy jail sentences and fines. Don’t fight an assault charge on your own. Hire an experience Utah assault attorney to defend your rights.
