Assault charges in Nebraska

Reading or hearing about criminal charges in the news does not always provide Nebraska residents with the full details about the cases being reported on. Some details can be left out, including details that full describe the actual charges and how they are classified. Some things that you may think are misdemeanors are actually felonies and vice versa. Assault charges are one type of criminal charge that may not always be fully understood.

According to the Nebraska state legislature, there are multiple levels of assault charges, some of which are felony offenses and some of which are misdemeanor offenses. A first degree assault charge and a second degree assault charge are both felonies in Nebraska. First degree assault is a Class II felony and second degree assault is a Class IIA felony.

Both charges involve the willful infliction of injury on another person. You may be charged with first degree assault if the alleged victim’s injuries were serious enough. You may be charged with second degree assault if harm was inflicted with any item deemed to be dangerous.

Third degree assault is actually a Class I misdemeanor in Nebraska unless the injury is said to have resulted from an encounter in which both parties mutually participated. In such a case, a third degree assault charge could be a Class II misdemeanor. These charges can involve actual injury but may also involve simply the threat of injury.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but general information about the different degrees of assault charges in Nebraska.
