Assault & Battery Charges in Burbank, CA

Burbank Criminal Defense Lawyer

Have you or someone you know been accused of or charged with assault and battery in Burbank, California? Assault and battery are actually two separate criminal offenses which are often grouped together or terms which are used interchangeably to describe a similar crime.

Under California law, an assault is an attempt or threat of violent injury against another person, with the apparent immediate ability to carry out this threat or attempt. Battery is defined as an action which causes bodily injury to another person. Therefore, the assault would be the attempt or threat of injury and battery would be the act itself that causes injury, such as hitting, striking or touching another person or an object intimately associated with a person.
