How Should These Clery Act Crimes Be Classified in Your ASR?

The correct answer is: d) One count of on-campus Domestic Violence and one count of on-campus Aggravated Assault

Domestic Violence is defined as a felony or misdemeanor crime of violence committed by:

  1. A current or former spouse or intimate partner
  2. A person with whom the victim shares a child in common
  3. A person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner
  4. A person similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction in which the crime of violence was committed
  5. Any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person’s acts under the domestic or family violence laws of the jurisdiction in which the crime of violence was committed

Aggravated assault is an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. It is usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm.
