Are There Other Assault Charges?

assault charges

Yes. Threatening or intimidating someone also falls under the assault umbrella in the state of Arizona. If you threaten to harm someone or their property, you could be charged with a class 1 misdemeanor. If this threat relates to gang recruitment or activity, you can be charged with a class 3 felony, which has a possible jail term of 3.5 years.

Putting someone at risk of death or injury is known as endangerment. In this case, only the risk of injury needs to be present. A misdemeanor charge relates to any act that causes risk of injury and has a potential 12-month prison sentence. A felony charge involves imminent risk of death. Although this also has a typical 12-month sentence, the charge is more serious when it comes to your criminal record.
