When one person causes another to fear he or she may be physically harmed (such as threatening to strike a person) this is called assault. When a physical object is used to threaten or cause the other person to be in fear of injury (such as a stick or a knife) this can be called assault with a deadly weapon. If the person is actually touched this is called battery. A person who has been charged with simple assault and battery may be charged with a misdemeanor charge with a maximum penalty of up to 93 days in jail or $500 fine, or both. Assault and battery which results in serious injury depending upon the specific circumstances could result in a fine of several thousand dollars and 10 or more years in prison. Having a skilled assault and battery lawyer on your side could make the difference between having a conviction on your record or no conviction at all.
