Aggravated assault can be filed as a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th, degree crime. Factors that determine where aggravated assault falls, depend on whether there was a weapon, the injury, intend, and status of the victim. The charge always is indictable, and can only be dealt at the county courthouse in Flemington.

Aggravated assault in second degree: This happens when a defendant attempted to/caused – serious harm to another. This also applies if you elude the police and end up in a car accident, where another person suffers bodily injury.

Assault in third degree: This is where a defendant is charged with assault in third degree, and where the defendant brandishes a firearm, or points a firearm, at another person. It could also be where you brandish, or use an imitation firearm, to intimidate a police officer.

Assault in fourth degree: This happens when you recklessly cause injury to another person with a weapon, or recklessly point a gun in their direction.

There are many potential penalties for aggravated assault charges. For a second degree crime, there’s a chance of 5-10 years in state prison, and up to $150,000 in fines. For third degree, penalties can include 3-5 years in prison, and a $15,000 fine. For a fourth degree crime, you could face an 18 month prison term, and a fine up to $10,000.


2nd Degree Aggravated Assault

A 2nd degree aggravated assault charge is the most serious of the three charges and is classified as a second degree felony.

In addition to the factors described above, there are other factors that can contribute to the charge becoming an indictable crime.

As an indictable crime, a 2nd degree aggravated assault charge carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of five years. The maximum prison sentence is 10 years.

3rd Degree Aggravated Assault

A 3rd degree aggravated assault charge is classified as a third degree felony.

In addition to the factors described above, there are other factors that can contribute to the charge becoming an indictable crime.

As an indictable crime, a 3rd degree aggravated assault charge carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.

4th Degree Aggravated Assault

A 4th degree aggravated assault charge is a lesser crime that is classified as a fourth degree felony.

In addition to the factors described above, there are other factors that can contribute to the charge becoming an indictable crime.

As an indictable crime, a 4th degree aggravated assault charge carries a maximum prison sentence of 18 months.

Penalties for Aggravated Assault

Penalties for aggravated assault can range from probation to a mandatory minimum prison sentence. If the charge is a 2nd degree aggravated assault, the mandatory minimum is five years.

The mandatory minimums are not subject to parole so the entire prison sentence would be required to be served. If the charge is a 3rd degree aggravated assault, the maximum prison sentence is five years. If the charge is a 4th degree aggravated assault, the maximum prison sentence is 18 months.

The charge is also subject to a fine of up to $150,000. If the victim is a police officer or other similar public servant, there are additional penalties that could be imposed up to 20-years imprisonment.

In addition to jail or prison time that may be imposed, the court may also order restitution to the victim for any expenses related to the assault.

In New Jersey, there are also mandatory penalties for anyone convicted of an aggravated assault charge. These penalties are called the Graves Act. If convicted of an aggravated assault that involves a deadly weapon, the mandatory minimum prison sentence is five years. The mandatory minimum prison sentence is three years if the victim does not suffer a serious bodily injury.

Additionally, anyone convicted of an aggravated assault charge is subject to a fine of up to $150,000. If the victim is a police officer or other similar public servant, there are additional penalties that could be imposed up to 20-years imprisonment.

The Graves Act also requires that anyone convicted of an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon must serve at least 85% of the prison sentence before they are eligible for parole.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
