WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ASSAULT AND BATTERY CALIFORNIA?

Assault happens when a person threatens to inflict injury on another person or displays force that causes the victim to fear bodily harm. The definition of assault takes into account the fact that an individual can place a person in fear or bodily harm without physically harming them.

Battery is using force to harm another person. Battery is sometimes referred to as “completed assault.” Depending on the circumstances, battery can either result in a misdemeanor or felony charge.

WHAT ARE CALIFORNIA ASSAULT & BATTERY CHARGES?

Assault and battery are two separate offenses. The possible charges for simple assault, misdemeanor battery, and felony battery are as follows:

  • Simple Assault: a misdemeanor resulting in up to 6 months of jail and/or a maximum fine of $1,000, probation, and restitution.
