Legal Question: Assault Charge

How much time would a married woman get for a simple assault charge if this is her first offense?

How much jail time she receives (if any) really depends on the skill of the attorney representing her. If she has no criminal record, it is very possible that she gets no jail time at all. Furthermore, there are alternatives like diversions or stipulated orders of continuance that a good attorney might be able to get the prosecutor to agree to. She should contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
