Assault And Battery Are Two Serious Charges

There are many situations in which someone could find himself or herself facing assault and battery charges. The fact is that most people may not realize the broad definitions of assault and battery:

  • Assault — Is the intentional communication of a threat of an unwanted and imminent physical contact. An assault arrest may occur through an act as simple as yelling at another driver in traffic. If the other person feels threatened, it can be assault.
  • Battery — Is the unwanted and intentional physical contact with another, which may or may not cause an injury. The contact can be minimal and still constitute a battery arrest.

If you have been charged with assault or assault and battery, you need to take the situation very seriously. If not handled properly, these cases can have negative consequences. A conviction for one of these charges begins to accumulate a record of violent crime.
