Assault & Battery Attorneys in Newport Beach

Orange County Criminal Lawyers with Over 30 Years of Experience

Assault and battery are two separate crimes that are frequently confused with one another or sometimes thought of as a single charge. In California, assault may be described as an attempt or threat of violence. Battery may be described as the unlawful use of force against another person, or even the unlawful touching of another person. Because an attempt and act of violence may be carried out together, assault and battery are frequently charged together.

Assault / Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Assault charges involve threatening another person with bodily injury, or attempting to commit bodily harm. Assault with a deadly weapon involves a threat or attempt with a firearm or other deadly weapon.

Simple assault may be punishable by:

  • Up to 6 months in county jail; and/or
  • A fine of up to $1,000.

Assault with a deadly weapon may be punishable by:

  • 2, 3, or 4 years in state prison; or
  • Up to 1 year in county jail; and/or
  • A fine of up to $10,000.


Battery may be defined as any willful and unlawful touching, or use of force or violence upon the person of another. In other words, if you’ve touched or struck someone without his/her consent or in an offensive manner, you may be charged with battery.

Battery is a broad umbrella term for various offenses:

  • Sexual battery
  • Battery upon an elder
  • Battery upon a child
  • Battery with force likely to produce great bodily injury
  • Battery resulting in great bodily injury
  • Battery upon spouse or cohabitant

Battery may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The maximum punishment for a misdemeanor is one year in jail. Felony battery, however, is punishable by imprisonment for at least 1 year in a state correctional facility. The specific punishment for felony battery is dependent on the form of battery itself.
