Understanding Threat & Assault Charges

Assault may be defined as an attempt or threat to commit bodily harm, or the act of intentionally causing bodily harm to another. There are different categories of assault and varied penalties that may be imposed, depending on such factors as:

  • The use of a weapon, firearm, or deadly weapon;
  • Whether the victim was a public servant, disabled person, child, or other protected person;
  • The extent of injury inflicted; and
  • The defendant’s criminal record, if any.

It is important to note that assault or threat charges may be filed even if no bodily harm was inflicted. A threat or attempt of violence alone may be sufficient for assault or aggravated assault charges in New Jersey.
