What is the Sentence for Domestic Assault?
An act of assault may or may not involve the use of a weapon and can also occur if the accused attempts or threatens, by an act or gesture, to apply force to another person. However, when injuries or a weapon is involved, the penalties are harsher, including the possibility of facing a lengthy jail term. If a weapon was used or the victim sustained bodily harm, the defendant could receive up to 10 years in jail. If the crime is considered to be an aggravated assault, you could face up to 14 years in jail.
In some cases, an accused may be sentenced leniently to a conditional discharge. This means the accused has either pled guilty or been found guilty after a trial, but does not receive a criminal record.
