Assault is the knowing or intentional infliction of bodily harm upon another. Aggravated assault is more serious than simple assault and usually involves some object used as a weapon and/or the intent to cause serious bodily injury to the other person. Weapons lead to more severe criminal charges and increased jail time. There are often defenses or justifications for assaulting another person such as self-defense or defense of a third party. Although the person whom you assaulted may have instigated and thrown the first punch, you may still be charged in the criminal system and fined and imprisoned.

The legal system is complicated and devastating to those who aren't prepared to fight for their legal rights. Many families are unnecessarily ripped apart and suffer because a loved one is incarcerated. Heavy fines and long prison sentences leave innocent family members outside of jail in dire financial situations. Society doesn't have much concern for a "criminal" and therefore it is important to stay out of jail if possible.
