What Is Assault And Battery?
Assault and battery refers to an intentional act that causes harm to a victim. An action that causes the victim to expect or fear that they will suffer harm or a similar threat of harm by the offender is assault. Battery is the actual physical contact made by the offender to cause harm or intimidate the victim. In order for the crime of assault and battery to take place, the victim does not actually have to be physically harmed under civil law.
