The Penalties for Felonious Assault in Michigan
If you’ve been accused of felonious assault, you are facing serious and life-changing penalties that can affect your freedom, future, and financial stability. Conviction comes with up to four years in state prison, along with a possible fine of up to $2,000. If you’ve been convicted of multiple felonies or you’re a “habitual offender,” you face even greater penalties. If a person commits felony assault in a “weapon free school zone,” the penalties will also increase. With heightened penalties, the maximum prison sentence is still 4 years, but the maximum fine is increased to $6,000, along with community service for up to 150 hours.
Assault does not require physical contact with the alleged victim to be charged; assault includes any action that causes a person to fear for their safety or life. With an aggressive felonious defense attorney in Farmington Hills on your side, you may be able to weaken the state's case against you. That could include proving that the alleged victim had no reason to fear for their life, providing evidence that you were acting out of fear for your own life, or filing a motion to keep prosecutors from using certain evidence against you.
