What Counts as Assault in the State of California?

According to the California Penal Code 240 PC, the crime of assault occurs when a person wrongfully commits or intends on committing a violent physical deed against another person. So long as injury is a probable result, then even the mere plan counts as an assault. This is an extremely problematic issue, since anyone can make a claim that a defendant was actually “intending” on committing an assault even if nothing ever happened. The tragic consequence is that sometimes innocent people are mistakenly accused, or even convicted, of something they never were guilty of.

What Counts as Battery in the State of California?

A closely related but distinct act, the term ‘battery’ has been defined by the California Penal Code section 242 as any kind of act where physical force or violence has been used to injure another person against their will. The problem is that this law does not mention the extent of an injury — even the slightest touch of someone against their will is subject to being called battery.

Misdemeanor & Felony Classifications for Assault & Battery

There are different charges for each crime, which have to do with the level of intensity, the amount of injury suffered, or even the age or physical capacity of the plaintiff.

Penalties for assault include:

  • Fines of up to $1000, as well as facing incarceration for up to 6 months if you have committed a simple assault crime, charged as a misdemeanor.
  • Increased sentence times if there are any aggravating factors involved in the assault, such as cases of child abuse or certain types of domestic violence

Penalties for battery include:

  • Fines of up to $2000, in addition to facing incarceration for up to 6 months if you have committed a simple battery crime, charged as a misdemeanor
  • Increased sentence times, ranging from 2 to 4 years, will be the result of more serious batteries or felony charges

    Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked at Bank of America, then started a sound and lighting business. During that time, I learned the most important thing was customer service and my clients. I feel like that is the one thing that can be missing in the legal profession. Having had my own negative experience with an attorney, I decided I wanted to make a change. I love people and that is why it is my goal to put the customers at the forefront of my practice.
