What Is the Difference Between Assault and Battery?

assault and battery

It is often incorrectly assumed that assault and battery are the same charge. In fact, assault is defined as an act that threatens harm along with the ability to carry out the threat. You don’t have to cause physical harm to the victim in order to be charged with assault. Battery is the actual striking or touching of another individual with the intention of committing harm.

Assault is a crime that can be carried out in the heat of the moment when emotions are running high. As there is not always physical injury involved in an assault, it can often be difficult to prove. Therefore, if you are charged with assault in Arizona, get in touch with The Law Offices of Gonzales & Poirier, and we will fight your case aggressively and effectively.
