Kalamazoo Assault with Intent Laws and Criminal Charges
Section 750.84 covers assaults paired with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, sometimes referred to as “Assault GBH.” According to this section, any person who assaults a person by strangulation or suffocation, or who otherwise assaults a person with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, will face felony conviction. Great bodily harm is not clearly defined, but falls somewhere in between aggravated assault and murder, and could be defined as impairment of a bodily function, maiming, or otherwise permanently harming another person. The definition is largely left to the court’s discretion and interpretations of past cases, but working with an experienced attorney can help you better understand what specific charges you may be facing, as well as what you need to do in order to protect yourself from conviction.
Criminal Penalties for Assault GBH in Kalamazoo
Anyone who is convicted of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder can face a felony conviction, along with a sentence including up to 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Obviously, along with any felony conviction, potentially life changing effects can result. A felony record will limit your ability to travel, work, study, and do other things you may depend on.
