What Is Felony Assault?
There are two primary forms of felony assault. The felony charge with serious bodily injury can be brought when an assault creates a substantial risk of death, permanent disfigurement, or the protracted loss or impairment of the function of any body part or organ.
Felony assault with a deadly weapon is a felony involving the use of a potentially deadly weapon. This could include a gun, a knife, a blunt object or any object that can serve the purpose of inflicting death on a victim.
