Default What does felonious Assault means?

What Does "Felonious Assault" Mean?



Not every attack can be defined as a felonious assault. Simple assault, in which the attacker is unarmed and any actual attack does not result in serious injury, is only a misdemeanor, and the legal penalties for simple assault generally are far less severe. On the other hand, an attacker who deliberately seeks to kill is guilty of murder or at least attempted murder.

Felonious assault can include other crimes that do not fit neatly into this broad definition. Attackers who cause a serious injury can be guilty of felonious assault even if they were unarmed. Most forms of sexual assault are classified as felonies as well. Attacks against infants and small children are usually classified as felonies without requiring that an attacker be armed, and in some jurisdictions, an actual or threatened unarmed attack against a pregnant woman might constitute felonious assault against the unborn child as well as the mother. Some jurisdictions have taken the concept of assault beyond the simple physical attack and have ruled that certain communicable diseases such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) are dangerous weapons, meaning that those who fail to disclose a positive diagnosis of AIDS or HIV to a sexual partner might be guilty of felonious assault.
