What Constitutes Assault in Missouri?

According to the statutes of Missouri R.SMo. 565.050, "Assault can constitute in the first degree if a person attempts to kill knowingly or cause serious physical injury to another person."

Assault can involve more than just fighting; charges can be in many different ways, such as shooting at someone, stabbing someone, punching someone, kicking someone, slapping someone, and many more.

Often the primary defense to assault charges is self-defense.

These changes mean that someone other than Defendant was the initial aggressor. In the State of Missouri, you have the right to stand your ground.
