Type of Crime:
Assault and Battery Crimes
A battery is any willful and unlawful use of force upon the person of another. Unlike the crime of assault, a battery requires some type of bodily injury or offensive touching. Although a battery is considered a misdemeanor in California, a conviction for battery, much like a conviction for assault, may result in severe penalties. If you have been charged with battery, it is in your best interest to retain the services of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
