Felonious Assault Legislation

According to Michigan assault legislation, a felonious assault occurs when a person assaults another person with a dangerous weapon without intent to commit murder or inflict great bodily harm. Assault GBH and assault with intent to murder are more serious criminal charges, which can lead to even harsher penalties than felonious assault conviction, which is already a serious felony. As outlined in the Penal Code, a dangerous weapon for purposes of this law can include:

  • Guns
  • Revolvers
  • Knives
  • Iron bar/Crowbar
  • Clubs
  • Bats
  • Brass Knuckles

Anything else that may be considered a dangerous or deadly weapon can also be included under felonious assault. If convicted, a felony record and harsh penalties are on the line. In addition, if a felonious assault takes place in a weapon-free school zone, the defendant can face additional penalties on top of the normal maximums for felonious assault. Always speak to a lawyer as soon as you can if you or someone you care about has been accused of a felony criminal offense. Our lawyers are available now to defend your rights and fight for your freedom.

Criminal Penalties for Felonious Assault

If you are convicted of felonious assault, you will face up to 4 years in prison and a fine of up to $2,000, along with a felony record which severely restricts your freedom for years after other penalties have been served. Offenders who are convicted of committing a felonious assault in a weapon-free school zone can face a fine of up to $6,000, and community service of up to 150 hours in addition to the 4-year jail sentence that is possible in all Clinton felonious assault cases.
