Assault & Battery Laws in California

Although often charged together, assault and battery are two separate offenses. Assault is defined as intentionally attempting to injure another or causing another to believe they will be attacked, but there is no actual physical contact. Battery is the intentional use of force or violence against another person. This involves an actual physical attack. While most charges are misdemeanors, certain situations may increase the severity of the charges.

More severe penalties may be imposed for assault or battery against:

  • Sports officials
  • Public workers
  • Members of the military
  • Elderly or disabled adults
  • Anyone on public transit property
  • Intimate partners or family members
  • Health care providers during the performance of their duties

Some assault and battery charges are called wobblers because they can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. These include assaults against a custodial officer, school district police officer, or juror. Battery wobblers include battery against a law enforcement officer, juror, or battery which requires medical treatment against a public worker, healthcare provider, or school employee when performing his or her duties.

Penalties for Conviction of Assault or Battery

The possible penalties for an assault or battery conviction may include years in jail or prison, fines of up to $10,000, and probation of up to 3 years. Our Los Angeles assault and battery lawyer provides honest answers with transparency, upfront expectations, and individual attention to every case.
