About Battery Charges
Battery may be defined as any type of bodily harm or negative physical contact with an individual that is intentional and done without legal justification or consent. Assault is distinct from battery and denotes any conduct that puts another individual in a position where they are in reasonable fear of physical harm. The two offenses are often charged together.
