Defending Against Assault And Battery Charges
Although assault and battery are terms that are often used together, they are actually two separate types of criminal charges. An assault usually involves the threat of violence or an attempt to hurt another person. Battery is charged when there is actual physical contact. Either charge is serious and requires an equally serious defense with the help of an experienced lawyer.
