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.
