Dublin Assault and Battery Attorney

30 Years of Criminal Defense Experience

Assault and battery are two different charges that are frequently charged together. Assault does not necessarily include any physical contact between two individuals and can be only a threat of a harmful act.

Battery is when the contact took place and one person used physical force against another in some type of activity. This can include shoving, kicking, punching or more serious types of battery, such as when a weapon is involved. Any charge of assault and battery is dangerous to the accused; if you are convicted you can expect to spend time in jail or prison, depending upon the degree of injury as well as your prior criminal record.

Assault can be defined as the intentional creation of fear of impending harm. Meaning, you can be charged with assault without physically touching another person.

For a defendant to be convicted of assault, three things must be proven:

  1. Intent - The defendant has to have intentionally acted in a threatening or scaring manner.
  2. Reasonable Fear or Apprehension - The victim must perceive that threat or harm is immediately impending.
  3. Harm - Physical or threats of harm via unwanted physical contact or verbal abuse actually, irrefutably occurred.
