Understanding Assault & Battery Charges in California
Although assault and battery are often charged together, they are actually two separate offenses. Assault refers to intentionally threatening another person with violence or attempting to inflict violence against another person. If the defendant intentionally touched, hit, or made contact with the victim against the victim's will, it is considered battery.
The legal penalties for assault & battery include up to four years in prison and up to $10,000 fines. However, depending on the circumstances of the crime, the penalties could be enhanced. Circumstances that often lead to a penalty enhancement include causing bodily injury or death, committing assault & battery during the commission of another crime, using a firearm, or using a machine gun or semiautomatic.
