Understanding California Assault & Battery Laws
Under California’s Penal Code 242 PC, “A battery is any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another.” While it may serve to envision some sort of beating when using the term “battery,” under California law, you can be accused of battery even if you didn’t cause intentional physical pain or trauma to an individual.
Meanwhile, “An assault is an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another” (California’s Penal Code 240). If you willfully touch someone else in a harmful or detrimental manner, you can be accused of battery in the state of California.
Whilean assault does not necessarily involve actual physical contact, battery does. However, both assault and battery are deemed as violent crimes and punishment for them can be harsh. If you’ve been charged with assault and/or battery, Attorney Funk can help you unravel the layers of your case, ensuring the best possible outcome for you.
