  1. Simple Assault is a Misdemeanor and would be a violation. It is suggested that you immediately talk with your attorney.


  2. Mr. Keller is exactly right. Simple Assault is a misdemeanor offense not a summary offense. It would be viewed as a violation. It would be a great idea to talk with your attorney about this situation
    Good luck.


  3. Both of my colleagues are correct. Simple Assault is a misdemeanor and yes you can be violated for a misdemanor. You may need two lawyers, one for the state offense simple assault and check back with the lawyer that represented you in the Federal case or perhaps the one lawyer is qualified to help you in state and federal court. Good Luck
