    strangulation; suffocation; aggravated assault

     

    Purpose

     

               Classifies strangulation and suffocation as aggravated assault, subject to a class 4 felony.

     

    Background

     

    A person commits assault by: a) intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causing any physical injury to another person; b) intentionally placing another person in reasonable apprehension of imminent physical injury; or c) knowingly touching another person with the intent to injure, insult or provoke such person.  Penalties for assault range from class 1 to class 3 misdemeanors.

     

    Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-1204 classifies certain types of assaults as aggravated.  Aggravated assaults include assaults where: a) a serious physical injury to another is caused; b) a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument is used; c) a private home is entered with the intent to assault; d) a child 15 years or younger is victimized by an adult; e) the victim is a peace officer, firefighter, school employee, prison employee, health care practitioner or prosecutor; f) the victim is physically restrained; g) the victim suffers temporary but substantial disfigurement or impairment of any body organ or part; or h) the assault is committed in violation of an order of protection.  Penalties for aggravated assault range from class 2 to class 6 felonies.

     

    There is no anticipated fiscal impact to the state General Fund; however, there may be increased prosecution and incarceration costs.
