Using a stun gun or Taser when assaulting someone is a more serious crime than a normal assault. It requires essentially the same conduct as a simple assault (an attempt to offensively touch or harm another person) but also requires use of a stun gun or less lethal weapon.
Because this crime is more serious the maximum sentence is greater. If charged as a misdemeanor the maximum jail term is one year. If charged as a felony the maximum sentence is three years unless the victim is a peace officer or firefighter in which case the maximum is four years.
