Punishment for aggravated assault can include prison time, fines, probation, electronic monitoring, loss of the right to carry a weapon, financial damages to the victim, and required counseling such as anger management. Aggravated assault can be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. A misdemeanor may result in a penalty like probation or counseling. A felony conviction is likely to carry jail time. Different states will carry different penalties. A judge will also want to look at prior criminal history before issuing a sentence. Every state will list the penalties for aggravated assault online. In many states, the penalty for a felony conviction of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon can be up to twenty years in prison. That is in addition to fines and other penalties. Clearly, aggravated assault is serious offense than carries significant consequences.

Depending on the way the wording of the law in your state and the penalty that is attached to it, it could be. It is more serious than "simple assault" or "disorderly conduct."
