The difference between assault and battery

You may find yourself facing assault charges without battery charges or a combination of both. This occurs because some states consider assault and battery separate crimes. Generally, states define these crimes as:

  • Assault - making a threat to cause violence to another person
  • Battery - making violent or unwanted contact with another person
Battery charges can pertain to hitting, kicking, punching, pushing, grabbing, spitting and other similar actions.

If you have any questions about these charges, an assault and battery attorney can help. Contact me now if you need a criminal defense attorney.

At Christine Martin Law®, I defend individuals in the Laguna Hills, Tustin, & Orange, CA areas and throughout the state accused of violent crimes.

California breaks up violent crimes into several specific charges. You should retain a violent crimes attorney right away if you've been accused of:

  • Murder or voluntary manslaughter
  • Attempted murder or attempted voluntary manslaughter
  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
  • Carjacking
  • Mayhem
  • Assault with intent to commit a specific felony, burglary, or robbery
  • Any felony in which a person inflicts great bodily injury on any person other than an accomplice

  • To be convicted of burglary, the prosecution only needs to prove that you broke into a property with the intent to commit a felony. A burglary does not necessarily have to result in the intended felony being carried out.
