There are four different types of assault cases in Washington State. The most serious being Assault 1° with Assault 4° being the least serious. 1° through 3° are felonies which means the jail penalty can be over a year in jail. These types of cases are handled by the Superior Court in the county where the incident took place.
So if the incident was in Bellevue, the King County Superior court in downtown Seattle would handle it. The Bellevue District Court can only handle misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor cases, which would include Assault 4°
