Assault, Aggravated Assault, & Battery: Know the Difference
It’s important to note that the definition of each of these three crimes differs from state to state, and in some states, they are grouped together. However, our aggravated assault and battery attorneys have outlined the charges as they are defined in the State of Washington.
While many states have distinct charges for “assault” and “battery,” an assault charge in Washington essentially covers both offenses. Assault charges typically involve the threat of violence and inducing fear in a victim. Battery charges are essentially when threats are carried out, and a physical attack occurs.
In the State of Washington, assault charges cover both the threat of violent force and the actual use of it. While not as severe as an aggravated assault charge, assault charges must be taken seriously. Vindicate law’s aggravated assault and battery lawyers have the experience and expertise you need to prove your innocence in court.
Aggravated assault charges are reserved for the most serious assault offenses. This typically involves a physical threat of violence with a deadly weapon. Building a strong, evidence-based defense for aggravated assault is crucial because the charges could permanently damage your reputation.
