Assault Vs. Battery Charges

Assault and battery are two separate charges, with battery being a subcategory of assault. You can find yourself accused of assault for making any kind of threat to another person, regardless of whether you followed through on an alleged threat. Battery, on the other hand, involves physical contact with the intent to cause harm.

Either charge can result in long-lasting consequences, including restraining orders, jail time, anger management classes and a permanent criminal record — affecting your job and even your ability to get an apartment or a loan. If your situation involved a weapon or a sex offense, the potential penalties could increase significantly.
