Criminal assault and criminal possession of a weapon can put you at risk of going to prison for a long time, subject you to hefty fines and impact your future, including in terms of procuring meaningful employment and legally possessing a firearm. The penalty for assault will vary depending on the severity of injury to the victim.

Assault charges are often based on who contacts the police first or who got the better of a fight (who was least injured), and self-defense is often overlooked. You have the right to protect yourself or others who are being threatened or attacked. Winning a fight is not a crime. Other defenses against assault charges may include mistaken identity.
