Many people believe that assault and battery are one and the same. They are not.
A battery describes the act of striking someone on purpose against his or her will. Assault on the other hand, occurs when an action or a threat places someone in imminent fear of bodily injury or death.
Because they are different offenses, they carry different charges and penalties. The degree will depend on the severity of punishment. Penalties for a simple fight will be different than penalties for an assault and battery with a firearm.
But any conviction likely involves mandatory incarceration, particularly if a domestic violence altercation has occurred. And, if you are not a U.S. citizen, you could also face permanent immigration consequences.
