Indiana's Penalties for Assault & Battery
While assault and battery are considered two different charges, they are
often paired together. So what is the difference between the two? Assault
is when someone commits an intentional act that makes a person believe
that physical harm is imminent. Battery is carrying out that threat by
physically striking or causing bodily injury. Depending on the severity
of the crime, assault and battery charges can be charged as misdemeanors
In the state of Indiana, individuals charged with a felony for assault
and battery could be facing the following penalties:
Class A felony—A maximum of 50 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
Class B felony—A maximum of 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
Class C felony—A maximum of 8 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
