HIRE A QUALIFIED CRIMINAL DEFENSE
There are a number of misconceptions and misunderstandings of the word “assault”. While we are quick to pair the word “assault” with images of brutality and blood, the simple reality is that the Michigan assault law is so all-encompassing that you could face up to 93 days in jail, a $500.00 fine, probation, and a damaged future for something as innocent as trying to kiss someone on the lips.

An assault conviction, under Michigan law, does not require that you physically touch someone. In fact, you could be convicted of a misdemeanor assault simply because the other person mistakenly thought you were trying to touch them, even if you had no intention of ever touching them. It is important to note that the penalties are significantly more severe if you have previous convictions.
