Assault and Battery Charges in Michigan

While assault and battery are similar and often punishable by similar penalties, there are differences between the two. While battery must involve physical contact, assault can include threats and other offensive contact against another person. Both charges involve intent, and anyone charged with either should contact an experienced defense lawyer immediately.

Types of assault and battery include aggravated assault, spousal abuse, child abuse, gang violence, and other offenses, and can result in fines, restraining orders, jail time, and a harmful criminal record. If convicted of a violent crime charge, it may be difficult to gain and keep a job, obtain loans, and receive scholarships, and could have other negative effects on your freedom. Contact Grabel & Associates immediately if you are accused of an assault or battery crime anywhere in Michigan.
