Your Alleged Degree of Assault Matters

If someone knowingly or intentionally causes physical harm to another person, they may face assault charges. Additionally, assault charges may be brought by the prosecution in situations in which negligence or recklessness led to the injury of another or if you are accused of hurting someone in self-defense or while committing another non-violent crime.

In any situation, you must act quickly to increase your odds of obtaining the best possible result from your case. As conviction can cost you thousands of dollars in fines and weeks, months, or years in jail or prison.

What is the Difference Between Misdemeanor and Felony Assault?

In Oregon, assault charges are classified into four degrees of varying severity. The charges you can face when arrested for assault will reach the misdemeanor level at least, but can be classified as a felony depending on the circumstances of your case. No matter what kind of assault charge you are facing, it’s important that you secure legal representation from a lawyer you trust.

What Is the Punishment for Assault in Oregon?

The penalties for assault in Oregon are as follows:

  • First-degree assault is a Class A felony that will result in punishment of up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $375,000.
  • Second-degree assault in Oregon is a Class B felony which will accrue up to 10 years in jail and fines up to $250,000.
