SIMPLE ASSAULT

PHILADELPHIA SIMPLE ASSAULT LAWYER

Simple assault involves the purposeful or reckless infliction of injury, or using a deadly weapon in a negligent manner. Simple assault is normally graded as a misdemeanor in the second degree; however, if it is committed during a mutual fight, it is graded as a misdemeanor in the third degree, and if it is committed against a child under 12 years of age, it is graded as a misdemeanor in the first degree.

 

You must be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very high burden for the prosecution to achieve. Michael F. Niznik is a Philadelphia simple assault attorney who knows how to build a defense that creates this reasonable doubt. If you are facing criminal charges, or are being investigated for criminal activity, contact our office as soon as possible.
