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:
- 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.
- Another way simple assault can be committed by someone is if they negligently injure someone with the use of a deadly weapon.
- Finally, the third way a person can commit simple assault is by putting another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.
