In Pennsylvania, there are two charges of assault that you could be facing, each holding very harsh penalties. Under the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, you could be charged with:

Simple Assault
Simple assault can be charged as a misdemeanor offense but has the potential of being elevated to a felony. These cases often involve a person knowingly and willingly causing bodily injury to another person or attempting to physically harm another person. This charge is often associated domestic violence charges.

Aggravated Assault
In an aggravated assault case, the individual may use a deadly weapon or cause intentional bodily harm to a police officer, firefighter or other person of authority. If serious bodily injury occurred, even a simple assault may be elevated to an aggravated assault charge, which can be prosecuted as a first-degree felony.
