Although assault and battery are two charges that often go together, many people think that they are both one charge that mean the same thing. This is not true, however. They are both two separate charges and it is possible to be charged with one without being charged with the other. Depending on which state you reside in, the distinction between the two may vary slightly.

Did you know?

When the word “aggravated” is often put in front of a charge of battery or assault, it is important to note that a battery or assault charge will not necessarily be an “aggravated” charge.
Aggravated charges, in fact, actually mean that the criminal act that the defendant is being accused of is actually much more serious than a traditional assault and/or battery charge. When these types of charges are “aggravated,” punishments will be different based on the details of the crime. In New York, being convicted of aggravated assault and/or aggravated battery can result in up to a thirty year prison sentence.
