Experienced Wisconsin Assault & Battery Defense Lawyer
The crimes of assault, assault and battery, and aggravated assault all involve intentional harm inflicted on one person by another. This may be a matter of someone attempting to or actually striking another. It may also be acting in a way where someone fears immediate harm. Often times, it is not a one-sided event, as mutual fighting can lead to an assault charge such as in cases of domestic disturbances.
Any crime involving a physical attack (or even the threat of an attack) is usually classified as an assault, a battery, or both. These charges can rise to the level of aggravated assault when the attack is of a more serious nature. This often includes trying or succeeding in inflicting serious injury or the use of a weapon during the altercation.
