Understanding the Charges You Face

Assault occurs when an individual puts another person in fear of immediate harm. This could occur through:

  • Threats of violence
  • Display of a deadly weapon
  • Malicious wounding
  • Child abuse & neglect
  • Spousal abuse

Simple assault, as well as assault and battery, is a Class 1 misdemeanor in Virginia and is punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a maximum fine of $2,500, or both. If the assault is committed against a law enforcement officer, a teacher or professor, a healthcare provider, or any other such individual, it is an aggravated case and can be charged and convicted as a Class 6 felony, resulting in imprisonment for one to five years, or a jail term of up to 12 months and a fine of up to $2,500.
