Protect Your Rights

While most people are familiar with the term “assault and battery”, these are actually two separate crimes.

Assault occurs when an action or a threat places someone in imminent fear of a non-consensual touching. Assault does not involve physical contact. Defense of assault charges sometimes include self-defense, defense of others, and defense of property.

Battery can be defined as an intentional act of harmful or offensive touching of someone without permission. Accidental contact, no matter how severe, is not considered battery. To be charged with battery, the person who was physically harmed does not have to require medical treatment.
