If someone threatens another person with imminent bodily injury, or causes physical contact with another who would regard the contact as offensive, this is when an assault charge is classified as a Class C misdemeanor. There is no bail bond amount, and the defendant is released to appear back in court. It gets enhanced to a Class A misdemeanor when someone causes bodily injury to another. A bail bond amount for this can range from $5,000-$15K. If the alleged assault is on a public servant or peace officer, or if it involves impeding breathing or circulation, it will be enhanced to a 3rd degree felony. Bail bond amounts for those charges range from $10K-$20K. Because these offenses have a victim involved and are considered to be morally wrong, the bail amounts will be closer to the higher end of the spectrum.
