Battery and Assault Charges Explained

Battery

Felony battery occurs when an individual intentionally strikes or causes harm to another person against their will. Battery can be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity of the crime.

Aggravated battery is when someone knowingly or intentionally causes great harm, permanent disability, permanent disfigurement or there’s use of a deadly weapon involved.

Assault

Assault is the unlawful threat by word or act to perform a violent act to another person, though the person threatening must have a reasonable ability to actually commit the acts. Assault is typically a misdemeanor.

Aggravated Assault, however, is a threat with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, or with the intent to commit a felony. This will typically be punishable as a third degree felony.
