Battery means an intentional act causing harmful or offensive contact with the “person” of another. The classic example of a battery occurs when a person gets into a fight with another.
A battery is often classified as a misdemeanor, although serious physical harm to another can result in a felony. No matter the classification, a conviction can result in severe consequences.
Unlike battery, an assault charge does not require that any contact be made between the suspect and the alleged victim. Instead, assault charges arise when the defendant has placed the victim in reasonable apprehension of immediate battery.
Domestic battery is a more severe charge than assault and battery. A domestic battery charge means that you are accused of causing bodily harm to a family or household member or that you made physical contact with that person that was of an insulting or provoking nature.
