Second Degree Assault

Proven Defense from a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Baltimore

There are three types of second degree assault in Maryland: (1) Intent to Frighten - intentionally frightening another person with the threat of immediate offensive physical contact or physical harm, (2) Attempted Battery – Attempting to cause offensive physical contact or physical harm, and (3) Battery – Causing offensive physical contact to another person. A conviction for assault carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years imprisonment, a fine up to $2,500 and a misdemeanor on your permanent record.

Second degree assault is the most commonly-charged violent crime in Maryland, with thousands of cases filed every year. Without proper legal representation, you will face an uphill battle in fighting your charges. The mere accusation that you have committed assault is enough to taint your reputation, but a conviction can change the course of your life as you know it and put a misdemeanor on your permanent record. This charge can make securing future employment or residences more difficult.

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”

  • Excellent Attorney

    “I received a speeding ticket on 95 in Baltimore recently, and I retained Mark Scheuerman to represent me in Maryland court. Mark was thorough and professional during the entire process, and secured a favorable judgement on my behalf. I highly recommend Mark and also highly recommend retaining the services of an attorney if you have been issued a speeding ticket in the State of Maryland.”
