Assault in the Second Degree is a class D violent felony. While a prison sentence is not mandatory, some period of incarceration is mandatory. You face up to 7 years in prison, up to 5 years’ probation, and a fine of $5,000. If you are receiving a probation sentence, you must do some jail, though no more than 6 months. A DNA sample will be collected. You also could be ordered to pay restitution, obey an order of protection, and do community service.
