ASSAULT AND BATTERY
AGGRAVATED ASSAULT, AGGRAVATED BATTERY
Assault is a crime where a person threatens to cause bodily harm to another person. Battery is the intentional touching or striking of another person against their will and without their permission. If you cause bodily harm or serious disfigurement or if you use a firearm during the commission of either of these crimes, the penalties are enhanced and the charges range in severity from misdemeanors to first degree felonies. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony count of assault or battery or aggravated assault and battery, contact Chris, an experienced criminal defense attorney, to discuss your legal rights.
