Assault Offenses & Aggravating Factors in Maryland

The Maryland Criminal Code § 3-201 uses the term "assault" to describe both assault and battery charges. That means assault in Maryland is defined as unwanted physical contact (battery), attempted battery, or "placing another in apprehension of battery" (frightening or threatening another person). Within these definitions, the statutes also identify a number of aggravating factors that could affect an assault charge.

Aggravating factors of an assault charge include:

  • The victim was a member of law enforcement
  • The suspect was an inmate who assaulted a correctional officer
  • A firearm was used
  • "Serious physical injury" was inflicted

The fourth example constitutes what is known as aggravated assault (Md. Ann. [Crim.] Code § 3-202) and is considered a serious felony. Penalties for these crimes vary depending on the alleged circumstances—but many of them include significant prison time if a conviction is reached. With prepared, aggressive, and proactive counsel, however, maximum penalties can be avoided.

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”
