Assault and Battery

Assault and Battery Laws in California - Penal Code 240 & 242 PC

Assault and battery are two separate and distinct criminal acts, usually grouped together in a criminal charge. If you threaten someone with bodily harm with the intention to inflict it, then the crime is considered assault, under California Penal Code 240.

The crime of battery under California Penal Code 242 is when one causes bodily harm to another by using direct physical contact. Both assault and battery are violent crimes and are very serious charges in the state of California.

Penalties may include up to 15 years in jail or prison, harsh fines, restitution, community service, probation and a mark on your criminal record for life. An experienced assault and battery Attorney in Los Angeles CA can be of assistance if you are facing such charges.
