There is a class 1, class 2, and class 3 misdemeanor assault charge with punishments ranging from one to six months in prison and fines ranging from $500 to $2,500. Typically, aggravated assault results in a class 3 felony charge and could lead to a minimum prison sentence of five years, though this could rise to 15 years depending on the circumstances. This is for your first conviction; subsequent convictions for aggravated assault could lead to an increased sentence, up to 25 years if it’s your third offense.
