2ND DEGREE ASSAULT

2nd degree assault is one of the most serious charges and requires nothing less than an experienced and accomplished Denver defense attorney to defend against it.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with assault in the second degree if:

  • The individual causes bodily injury to another person using a deadly weapon while the individual possesses intent to cause bodily injury; or,
  • The individual intentionally causes bodily injury to any person while acting with intent to prevent one whom the individual knows, or should know, is a peace officer or firefighter from performing a lawful duty; or,
  • The individual recklessly causes serious bodily injury to another person using a deadly weapon; or,
  • The individual intentionally causes physical or mental impairment by administering to another, without consent, a drug or substance capable of causing physical or mental impairment.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, 2nd degree assault can be a class 3 felony, a class 4 felony, or a class 6 felony.
