POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF A 2ND DEGREE ASSAULT CONVICTION
A 2nd degree felony assault conviction carries a maximum prison sentence of 7 years and a $14,000 fine. However, if the dangerous weapon assault causes a fracture, or temporary and substantial disfigurement or impairment, you may be facing up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
