Each classification will be charged as a class 1, 2 or 3 misdemeanor respectively. Assault becomes a felony when the assault causes serious physical injury; it is committed with a deadly weapon, if the victim is restrained and many other circumstances. This is important to know because a juvenile between the ages of 15 and 17 who is charged with aggravated assault will be charged as an adult pursuant to ARS §13-501. Depending on various circumstances, aggravated assault is generally charged as a class 3 felony and can carry a prison sentence of five to 15 years for a first offense.
