What Are the Different Types of Assault & Battery Charges?
Although they are often charged together, assault and battery are actually different crimes. Assault has to do with the threat of harm, while battery involves causing physical harm.
There are also aggravating factors which can affect the seriousness of the charges you are facing. For example, strangulation or the use of a deadly weapon can take a simple battery charge and turn it into a felony.
A few types of assault and battery charges you could face include:
- Simple assault
- Protected class assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Battery with little harm
- Battery with significant harm
- Battery with a deadly weapon
- Battery against a protected class
