Assault

Simple assault is defined as attempting to commit a violent injury on someone else or putting them in a situation where it's reasonable they could be injured in such a manner. Physical touching isn't necessary to violate the law; mere words can be enough. Simple assault is a misdemeanor that could get up to 1 year in jail, fines reaching $1,000, probation, and restitution to the victim. The fines increase to $5,000 if the victim was pregnant, a senior, a police officer, a caregiver, a school employee, or if the crime was domestic.

Aggravated assault involves the intent to murder, rape, or rob; likewise, it consists of the use of a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault could also be when someone shoots a firearm from within a motor vehicle toward another person or a group of people. This charge is a felony and can lead to 1 to 20 years in prison, fines, and restitution.

Battery

Simple battery involves intentionally making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with another person or intentionally causing bodily harm to another person. This crime is a misdemeanor that could result in up to 1 year in jail, fines up to $1,000, and restitution. The fines increase to $5,000 if the victim was pregnant, a senior, a police officer, a caregiver, a school employee, or if the crime was domestic.

Aggravated battery involves intentionally and maliciously inflicting a severe injury to the victim, such as the loss of a limb or serious disfigurement. It is a felony and can lead to 1 to 20 years in prison, fines, and restitution.
