Washington Violent Crimes Attorney

Under Washington state law, assault is defined as the infliction of bodily harm, with the intention to do so. There are various degrees of assault with which you can be charged, including:

  • First degree assault, which includes assault with a deadly weapon or intentional exposure to poison, the HIV virus or any other noxious or destructive substance
  • Second, third and fourth degree assault
  • Drive-by shootings
  • Custodial assault or assault of a child
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Malicious harassment
  • Promotion of a suicide attempt
  • Failing to summon assistance

The penalties associated with conviction for these charges vary according to the level of intention to harm, the harm actually caused and other circumstances of the situation.
