Assault and battery are among the most well-known violent crimes with which defendants are charged. And likewise, with most violent crimes, the conceivable results of a conviction for assault and/or battery are habitually significant. Assault and Battery refer to different acts. Assault is the threat of a battery against another, combined with an act towards committing the battery. Battery is the unlawful touching or striking of another against their will.
