Assault is a criminal offense involving the threat or attempt of violence upon another individual. It does not involve physically hitting or physical violence against that person, but many people who are charged with assault may also face charges of battery. Battery is the actual physical hitting, striking or touching of someone else against their will. Juveniles charged with assault and battery could face penalties and consequences that can have a lasting impact on their future.

In a nutshell, any attempt or threat to physically harm someone else, if followed by unlawful force or violence, or appearance of unlawful force or violence, is considered Assault or Battery. Usually, this is filed as a Class A misdemeanor charge, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine, but depending on the circumstances, the prosecutor may raise the charge to Aggravated Assault, a second degree felony. This charge may carry a penalty of up to fifteen years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Because the penalties can be extreme, it is vital that anyone charged with Assault or Battery contact an experienced assault and battery defense attorney immediately.
