Assault can be classified as a misdemeanor or Felony, depending on several factors.  The most serious felony assault charges involve intentional infliction serious physical injury with a deadly weapon or instrument.  These charges can carry a sentence of up to twenty years in prison. Misdemeanor assault usually involves minor injury or no injury at all.  In either case, the prosecution must prove each of the required elements to get a conviction.


Manslaughter occurs when a person kills another without the intent to kill and often occurs as the result of a single bad choice.  Whether the killing occurs as a result of a fight, driving while intoxicated, or as the unintended result of another crime, the sentences are usually severe.
Murder involves the proof of additional elements and can range from intentional, premeditated murder to killing in the commission of another crime.  Like other violent crimes, the severity of the resulting penalties can vary greatly.  If you are charged with any violent crime, particularly homicide, it is vitally important to obtain powerful representation from the outset.
