The Difference Between Assault and 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 or felonies.

Indiana's Penalties for Assault & Battery

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.
