Thank you very much -Assault in the fourth degree or simple assault is the most commonly charged assault crime in WA State. It is a gross misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine, with no mandatory minimum (unless there is a special designation such as domestic violence). So depending on the facts of the case, your friend is looking at one year in jail.
