Penalty Enhancements for Assault
You can expect particularly harsh penalties if the victim was a minor.
If force, fear, violence, a deadly weapon or threats were involved, you
will be charged with "aggravated assault."
You could be charged with "super aggravated assault" if any of
the following factors were present:
- The victim was younger than 6 years old
- The victim was under 14 years old and was given drugs
- The victim was under 14 years old and suffered bodily injury
- The victim was under 14 years old and was in legitimate fear of their life
If you are convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child, you can face
a 25 years to life sentence (without the possibility of parole). You could
also face fines up to $10,000.
