ASSAULT, BATTERY, ASSAULT & BATTERY, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT, AGGRAVATED BATTERY, AGGRAVATED ASSAULT & BATTERY

ASSAULT



Assault is, for all intents and purposes, an attempt to commit a battery. It is a threat of force or use of force that makes another person apprehensive of a harmful or offensive contact.


BATTERY


A battery is, for all intents and purposes, the touching of another person in a harmful or offensive manner. It is essentially a willful use of force or violence against another person.


AGGRAVATED ASSAULT & BATTERY


An assault and/or battery can be charged as a more serious or aggravated crime if the offender uses a firearm or some other deadly weapon, or if the assault and/or battery were against a government officer or an elderly person.
