What’s The Difference Between Assault & Battery?

Assault and battery are distinct, but they are closely related. Essentially, assault is the criminal act of threatening or attempting physical violence against another person. Battery, on the other hand, is actually carrying through on the threat. If, for example, you threaten to punch someone, you would be considered to have committed assault. If you actually punch the individual, you have committed battery. Although prosecutors will typically charge you with both crimes, you may only be convicted of one or the other.

Aggravated Assault & Battery

If you commit the assault or battery with a deadly weapon, you will be facing far more serious charges than for a simple offenses. Aggravated battery is a felony offense, as is any assault in which a firearm was discharged. You can also be charged with the felony of second degree battery, if the injury results in serious bodily injury.
