What is Attempted Assault in New York?

When it comes to assault in the third degree, the two elements must exist: (1) you intended to inflict physical harm and (2) you actually cause physical injury or “substantial pain” to another person. If the second element is not fulfilled, the offense must be prosecuted as a lesser crime, such as attempted assault in the third degree.

You can be charged with attempted third-degree assault if you had an intent to commit the offense and you engaged in actions or behavior that would impact the commission of the crime. For example, swinging at someone but missing would be attempted assault in the third degree.

Additionally, it is considered attempted assault if you hit someone once or several times, but the other person doesn’t suffer physical injury. Therefore, if you were trying to cause such injury, but failed to do so, you still could be charged with attempted third-degree assault.

What are the Penalties for Attempted Third-Degree Assault?

Attempted assault in the third degree is a Class B misdemeanor, which carries a maximum jail term of 90 days and/or a fine of up to $500. As we mentioned earlier, a conviction also results in a criminal record, which can negatively affect your personal life and professional reputation.
