A first offense is generally a Misdemeanor level, meaning it is punishable by jail for up to 90 days, a $1000.00 fine, or both. However, if the assault involves strangulation, it is considered a Felony with far more severe consequences.
Levels also increase to a Gross Misdemeanor if it is a second offense in a 10 year period, bringing the penalty of jail up to one year, a fine of $3000.00, or both. A third such offense in the 10 year period results in a Felony with prison time and an increased fine amount.
