Definition of Battery

Battery is the intentional touching of another without his or her consent. It is typically a misdemeanor, but can be charged as a felony if the person has a prior battery conviction, causes a significant injury, or uses a deadly weapon.

Assault As a Felony

Assault requires that a person be placed in reasonable fear of imminent harm. It does not require any physical contact. Though assault is typically charged as a misdemeanor, it may become a felony under certain circumstances.
