As a general rule, assault cases involve the use of physical force to injure an individual or even just to cause alarm, and as a result allegations of assault can be extremely serious. Those charged and prosecuted in such cases can end up facing a lengthy jail sentence, depending of course on the relevant circumstances, such as the intent of the assailant and the injuries suffered by the victim.
