Columbus Assault & Battery Defense Lawyer
What Is the Difference Between Simple & Aggravated Assault & Battery?
In Georgia, both assault and battery crimes are broken down into two categories: simple and aggravated. Simple assault and battery crimes are considered less serious crimes and charged as misdemeanors. Aggravated assault and battery crimes are more severe in nature and are charged as felonies.
The sentencing for those convicted of these types of crimes includes:
- Simple assault and battery - Up to 12 months in jail, fines up to $1,000, and restitution
- Aggravated assault and battery - Between 1 year and 20 years in prison, up to 20 years of probation, a fine of up to $100,000, and restitution
Assault and battery crimes are among the most common criminal offenses. Generally, these offenses involve threatening, attempting, or causing violent injury to another person. The crimes can be as minor as touching someone against their will or as severe as using a deadly weapon against someone in such a way that causes the loss of a limb or serious disfigurement.
