What is Assault and Battery?
Assault can be legally defined as an unlawful threat of violence. Battery is often defined as unwanted touching or overt contact physical contact, with the intention of harming or disrespecting. And while bodily injury may result from assault and battery, injury is not required under the law for assault and battery charges to exist. In other words, one person threatening another person can lead to a charge of assault. A charge of battery, however, must involve an act of physically touching another person (with the body or other objects) the offender intends to harm. These charges are often brought against someone accused of domestic violence.
