Felonious Assault is generally a felony of the second degree and is punishable by up to 8 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000. What distinguishes felonious assault from aggravated assault is that aggravated assault results from serious provocation reasonably sufficient to incite a person into using deadly force. Felonious assault is distinguished from assault in that felonious assault entails serious physical injury.
