Defining Assault And Battery
Assault and battery are not interchangeable and are actually two separate crimes. If a person is violent toward another person and causes harm, they may be charged with battery. Assault, on the other hand, does not have to result in injury for charges to be filed. The mere fact that a person knew their actions could cause injury is enough to pursue a case.
Simple assault in California is a misdemeanor. You may face a fine or jail time if you are convicted. However, if the assault involved an individual such as a police officer or EMT, penalties can increase. In some cases, prosecutors may file aggravated assault or battery charges, especially if a deadly weapon is involved. Contact our firm directly to discuss the penalties of the charges you are facing as they relate to your individual case.
