Although they are often used together, assault and battery are not the same thing. You can be charged with both crimes or just one depending on the incident which allegedly occurred. The specific details of how the crime was allegedly committed directly affect the consequences you could be facing if you are found guilty.

If you are convicted for an assault charge, you could face the following types of consequences:

  • A significant fine
  • Time in county jail
  • Loss of privileges
  • Permanent criminal record

It is important to understand that time is of the essence and the sooner you take legal action, the better. For example, if you were found attacking another individual in self defense and were arrested and charged, it may be difficult to find witnesses who are willing to testify.
