Assault Classes in Arizona

In Phoenix, Arizona, assaults are classified according to their severity (Class 1 to Class 3 are misdemeanors, while aggravated assault is a felony). In the state, the higher the class number, the less severe the offense is. Aggravated assault is the most serious assault charge in Arizona. Aggravated assault means that someone caused a serious injury to a victim with a deadly weapon or assaulted a public servant. Assault is also considered aggravated if it occurs to a child under the age of 15.
