Assault is the threat or attempt to strike someone, whether it is successful or unsuccessful. The target must be aware that there is danger, and the assaulter must be reasonably capable to carry through with the attempt to harm. An assault can only take place when there is the present ability to act.
Under criminal assault laws, it is not necessary for the victim to have sustained physical harm, the threat to harm is enough to constitute as assault and lead to assault charges. There are different degrees of assault that can either constitute as a misdemeanor assault or a felony assault. When a person is charged with assault, consequences include imprisonment, probation or parole, fines, loss of the right to possess firearms, and mandatory anger management classes depending of the degree of the assault.
