Custodial Assault happens when a person assaults a staff member or volunteer of a jail, corrections institution, or other detention facility. Typically, prosecutors will usually charge the more serious charges of assault in the first or second degree if the circumstances of the assault rise to those levels. Custodial assault is a class C felony.
