Types of criminal assault cases involving sexual abuse
Criminal assault is a legal term used to describe assault cases in which a crime was committed. As a result, the State of Utah prosecutes people charged with criminal assault. If found guilty, the person charged with criminal assault may face jail time or probation. Criminal assault cases can cover a wide range, including:
- Threatening to hurt someone, accompanied by a show of violence (Misdemeanor B)
- Intentionally injuring someone (Misdemeanor B)
- Injuring someone and causing substantial bodily harm (Misdemeanor A)
- Injuring a pregnant woman (Misdemeanor A)
- Injuring someone with a dangerous weapon (3rd Degree Felony)
- Injuring someone with a dangerous weapon, causing serious harm (2nd Degree Felony)
In contrast, assault cases may also be considered a civil matter. In those cases, the person who was assaulted would pursue a civil assault lawsuit in order to obtain financial compensation from the person who assaulted them.
