Understanding Assault & Battery in Chula Vista

The first step in fighting your charges is understanding the accusations that have been made against you. Although the phrase “assault and battery” is often used to describe one criminal act, under California law, these are two different offenses.

These crimes can be distinguished in the following manner:

  • Assault: the threat of using physical force or the act of trying to inflict physical force upon another
  • Battery: the actual act of touching someone with the intent to harm or offend them, regardless of whether or not they get injured

Conviction for an assault or battery charge can result in some steep consequences, including hefty fines and extensive jail time. Individuals may also be required to complete a probation term, participate in a batterer’s treatment program, and perform mandatory community service.
