Alaska Law determines that assault occurs when a person recklessly or intentionally causes bodily harm to another individual.
Alaska defines three different degrees of assault that range from Class B Felony to Class A Misdemeanor. Assault in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree are considered felony assault, and Assault in the 4th degree is considered a misdemeanor. Penalties for Assault charges range depending on the severity and can include some or all of the following: incarceration, fines, probation, community service, and/or restation paid.
Criminal defense attorneys are well versed in the extensive criminal law, understands the complex legal definitions and are well versed in the many defenses that can be used when facing an assault charge. An attorney can negotiate on your behalf to negotiate a plea that reduces charges or penalties, or if you are falsely accused has the experience and knowledge to represent and defend you in trial.
