The Two Degrees of Assault
In the state of Maryland, there are two degrees of assault: first degree and second-degree assault.
A second-degree assault is commonly classified as a misdemeanor in which the prosecution needs to prove: intent to frighten, attempted battery, or battery. Only one of these needs to be proven to get a conviction.
A first-degree assault conviction will occur if someone commits one of the above acts with a firearm or with intent to cause serious harm.
