This is a question I get asked a lot as a criminal defense lawyer in Maryland.  The answer is 2nd degree assault is a misdemeanor in Maryland.

If you are convicted of second degree assault in Maryland, you could be facing a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and/or a $2,500.00 fine.

Q: What should you do if charged with 2nd degree assault in Maryland?

A: Call a license Maryland criminal defense attorney that handles second degree assault charges in the jurisdiction where you are charged.

You want to make sure you hire a lawyer that is known by both the Judges and State's Attorneys or prosecutors in the County where you are charged.

I have been representing clients charged with 2nd Degree Assault for years in the following counties and cities:
  • Baltimore County;
  • Baltimore City;
  • Harford County;
  • Howard County;
  • Anne Arundel County; and
  • Ocean City, Maryland.
Let me help resolve your second degree assault charges in Maryland with a favorable outcome.  Most 2nd degree assault cases hinge on:
  • The statements made by the victim;
  • The statements made by any witnesses;
  • The photos taken by the police;
  • The photos taken by the victim;
  • The medical reports from the hospital or doctors;
  • The 911 call tapes;
  • Any other evidence collected at the scene.
Making sure that type of evidence is not seen by the Judge in trial is imperative to the success of most assault cases in Maryland.
