Modified Transcript of “Assault and Battery Charges” for the Hearing Impaired:
There are different types of assault. There’s simple assault, there’s assault on a female, there’s assault on a government official, there’s assaults on children, and sometimes they’re felonious assaults that have the potential for long term prison sentences.
Criminal Battery has been traditionally defined in part as:
The unlawful application of force to the person of another
It may be divided into its three basic elements:
- Defendant’s Conduct (Act or Omission);
- Defendant’s Mental State, which may be an intent to kill or injure, or criminal negligence, or perhaps the doing of an unlawful act;
- The Harmful Result to the victim, which may be either either a Bodily Injury or Offensive Touching – Blacks Law Dictionary
Assaults and Battery, in the Criminal Law context, have important distinctions.
