What is 4th degree assault?


Answer by  Tracipoo (1329)

A 4th degree assault is a gross misdemeanor with possible penalties of one year in jail and a fine of not more than 3000. Hope this was some help to you.

It depends on where you live. In Minnesota for instance, it is defined as causing physical injury to a police officer, fireman, or EMT. In Oregon, it's causing physical injury by "Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causes physical injury to another". Colorado, on the other hand, has no 4th degree assault statute.
