What Is Assault & Battery?

Assault and battery are two different criminal offenses, but they are often charged together. The crime of assault involves the threat of force, whether with words or with a weapon, that puts another in fear of their safety or life. Battery involves the act of physically harming another individual and causing damage or injury.

There are a few circumstances which can lead to charges being enhanced, such as:

  • Assault and battery on a minor
  • Assault and battery on a senior citizen
  • Assault and battery on a police officer
  • Assault and battery on a civil servant
  • Assault and battery using a weapon

Individuals charged with aggravated assault and/or battery face a number of serious penalties which jeopardize not only their freedom, but their ability to get on with their lives in the future. After serving a sentence, convicted individuals may have difficulty finding employment, finding a place to live, obtaining a loan, obtaining certain forms of government assistance, regaining custody of their children, and much more. To potentially improve your chances of preserving your future, be sure to get in touch with our team right away.
