Understanding How The Court Looks At Assault And Battery
Some states classify assault and battery as two separate crimes, but in Indiana, all crimes that involve physically violent assaults are considered battery. Battery is defined as the crime of knowingly or intentionally touching another person in a rude or angry manner. You can be charged with battery for hitting, slapping, punching, pushing, kicking or elbowing someone else. You can also face battery charges for throwing something at another person, including bodily fluids.
It’s important to note that you can face battery charges even if the victim is not physically injured. It doesn’t matter whether or not you actually harmed the victim – all that matters is you intended on making physical contact with the victim in a rude or angry manner. However, the charges are enhanced in cases where the victim was injured, which means you could face more serious penalties for causing harm.
