St. Louis Assault Attorney

Facing assault charges?

There are three degrees of assault that an individual could be charged with in Missouri. Bcause it is considered a violent crime, assault penalties can result in up to 30 years imprisonment, depending on the seriousness of the crime. A person could be charged with second-degree assault if they attempt to kill or cause serious injury to another person without forethought. This charge also includes any injury or attempt of injury with a dangerous weapon.

The offense can be charged as third-degree assault when the person knowingly tries to kill or cause serious injury to another person. Third-degree assault also applies to an individual who recklessly causes or attempts to cause physical injury, fear of physical injury or risk of death to another person.
