What is the Difference Between Assault & Battery?

In Michigan, an individual may be charged with assault or battery depending on the circumstances of the encounter:

  • Assault means acting with intent to physically harm someone or causing a person to believe they were in danger of being harmed. For example, threatening someone with a gun would be considered assault even if the victim was not injured.
  • Battery means force was used to hurt someone. This could be from a slap or punch, or from using an object as a weapon. If you’re accused of battery, you are also simultaneously accused of assault since harming someone entails attempting to harm them.

What are the Penalties for Assault & Battery?

The penalties for a first-time assault or assault and battery charge in Michigan are the same -- up to a $500 fine and no more than 93 days in jail. Both are categorized as a misdemeanor. A second offense of assault or assault and battery can be punished by up to a $1,000 fine and 1 year in jail.
