Utah Aggravated Assault Charges and Penalties
Aggravated assault charges in Utah are serious. According to Utah law, aggravated assault is comprised of two parts. The first criteria relates to attempting to use force or violence to injure another person, threatening to do so and then exhibiting a show of force, or risking or causing substantial bodily injury to another person. The second element involves using a dangerous weapon, restricting the breathing or circulation of another person, or using some other method that is likely to result in death or serious injury. Taken together, this type of aggravated assault can result in a third degree felony conviction, which is punishable by up to five years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines. If the assault results in serious bodily injury or produces a loss of consciousness, the stakes can be even higher – a second-degree felony. A second-degree felony conviction can mean up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
