Understanding Assault & Battery Charges

Assault and battery are actually two separate criminal offenses, both violent crimes that involve an attempt or act of violence against another person. Assault is defined as the attempt or threat of violent injury on another with an apparent ability to carry out the threat and therefore to put the victim in reasonable fear for his or her safety. Battery is defined as the act of violence itself, such as hitting, striking, or touching another person against their will. Assault and battery charges are often grouped together in criminal cases as both the attempt and the act may be prosecuted.

With the proper San Diego criminal defense lawyer on your side, you have the opportunity to fight your assault and battery charges. Law enforcement may try to violate your rights, but you should not face a criminal conviction for an offense you did not commit.

If you are facing assault and battery charges, count on The Law Offices of Christopher P. Sohovich to defend you with ferocity. Call us today at (619) 304-8865.
