Assault & Battery is a serious offense in Georgia. The thing that a lot of people fail to realize is that they are actually 2 separate offenses. If both have been committed then they are listed together. Many people think they are just one offense because they are so often linked together.
Assault occurs whenever somebody tries to inflict harm to another unsuccessfully. This could be intimidation, threats, or harassing gestures. Battery is whenever someone inflicts bodily harm to a person intentionally. It is the 'bodily' harm that separates the two offenses.
Any attempts to threaten or commit violent injury to another person may wind up being a Simple Assault. This is a misdemeanor. Whenever an assault is committed in a more heightened manner such as:
it then qualifies as being an Aggravated Assault. These offenses are felonies, and are punishable by as much as 20 years behind bars.
Anybody charged with either assault or battery needs to be aware that circumstances exist that could possible elevate the potential penalties the are facing, resulting in a longer minimum term of imprisonment. Examples of these would be crimes against public employees, prior criminal convictions, crimes committed on public land, or any other kind of aggravating circumstances. Regardless of the charge, there are criminal defense lawyers at Webb & D'Orazio, who will utilize their collective experience to give you the proper professional representation necessary to defend you and your rights.
