It depends on the situation and the state as laws vary. Generally speaking, simple assault may be up to 30 days in jail, but in most cases probation given.

The punishment will be based on who he assaulted, whether or not he has a past, etc. Common punishment is up to 12 months jail time, counseling, and the like.
