Felonious Assault (Section 750.82) in Southfield, Michigan
Felonious assault occurs when one person assaults another with a dangerous weapon, without intent to inflict great bodily harm or commit the crime of murder. In many felonious assault cases, the prosecution will pursue assault with intent charges first, but may settle for felonious assault once realizing they don’t have sufficient evidence.
Assault doesn’t just mean a person using physical force against another, though that may be the case. Assault can include putting a person in fear or making threats. Additionally, assault with a dangerous weapon includes more than just the obvious weapons like guns and knives. A person can be convicted of felonious assault if they commit an assault with any of the following:
- Iron Bar
- Brass Knuckles
- Any other dangerous weapon
