Under N.J.S.A. § 2C:12-1a(1), a person commits a simple assault if he or she attempts to cause or purposely, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another person. Some examples of this offense include: spitting in someone’s face, hitting someone in order to cause them soreness, or slapping a person’s face. A simple assault conviction can result in a six (6) month prison term.
However, simple assault can become an aggravated assault if an aggravating factor is present. Aggravating factors may include:
An aggravated assault conviction can result in as much as 10 years in prison and up to $150,000 in fines.
