Simple Assault and DYFS in New Jersey

Simple Assault and DYFS in New Jersey

In New Jersey, simple assault can be committed in three ways. While each of these ways are different, they all result in a person being injured, or the intent to injure was present. Below are a few ways someone can commit simple assault:

  1. One way a person can commit simple assault is by either attempting to cause bodily harm to another, or actually causing someone to suffer a bodily injury. This injury must be caused either purposely, knowingly, or recklessly.
  2. Another way simple assault can be committed by someone is if they negligently injure someone with the use of a deadly weapon.
  3. Finally, the third way a person can commit simple assault is by putting another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.
