Felonious Assault Law and Legal Definition

Michigan state law defines the crime of felonious assault as “a person who assaults another person with a gun, revolver, pistol, knife, iron bar, club, brass knuckles, or other dangerous weapon without intending to commit murder or to inflict great bodily harm less than murder is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 4 years or a fine of not more than $ 2,000.00, or both. Felonious assault is defined as including the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against the person of another.” United States v. Mosley, 2009 U.S. App. LEXIS 16953 (6th Cir.
