Assault & Battery Charges and Your Rights
Assault & battery are most often charged together. They are actually two distinctly separate crimes and a defendant can be charged with one or the other or both. Assault involves a threat of harm to the victim which causes him/her to feel fear of harm. No physical contact actually occurs, but the crime is committed through words or gestures or some type of threatening act. The three degrees of assault are simple assault, aggravated assault and felony assault.
The charge is battery if physical contact was intentionally made with the alleged victim, against their will. Battery is also classified in three degrees. Both assault and battery charges are serious violent crimes and if you have been charged with either or both, you need a
