  • Assault vs. Battery

    Posted Apr 12th, 2013 By in Battery Charge With | Comments Off on Assault vs. Battery


    We’ve all been there… Someone has made us so angry that the only solution we can see is striking them. Or perhaps you suffer from road rage and actually got out to yell at another motorist. Regardless of the cause, assault and battery are the easiest charges to be convicted with. But what is the difference between them? Are they both physical? Are you always charged with both or only one at a time? Does one lead to another?

    If you’ve ever wondered these questions, your answers are below.

    Assault… is the threatening of a victim, generally verbal. Although assault does not include the actual touching of the victim, the victim believes that he/she is being threatened and in danger of being harmed.

    Battery is the actual harming of the individual, either physical or verbal. Although some states have replaced the word “battery” with the word “assault”, most states have kept them as two different crimes/charges.
