Assault and Battery

Criminal defense lawyers in gwinnett county, GA


There are two types of assaults and batteries: simple and aggravated.  Both are extremely serious crimes. You need an aggressive attorney who will defend your rights and fight for you!


A simple assault is defined in the Official Code of Georgia, § 16-5-20 which states:

(a) A person commits the offense of simple assault when he or she either:
(1) Attempts to commit a violent injury to the person of another; or
(2) Commits an act which places another in reasonable apprehension of immediately receiving a violent injury.


Depending on the situation, a simple assault may be a misdemeanor or a high and aggravated misdemeanor.


A simple battery is defined in the Official Code of Georgia,  § 16-5-23 which states:

(a) A person commits the offense of simple battery when he or she either:
(1) Intentionally makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with the person of another; or
(2) Intentionally causes physical harm to another.


Depending on the situation, a simple assault may be a misdemeanor or a high and aggravated misdemeanor.


An aggravated assault is defined in the Official Code of Georgia, § 16-5-21 which states:

(a) A person commits the offense of aggravated assault when he or she assaults:

(1) With intent to murder, to rape, or to rob;

(2) With a deadly weapon or with any object, device, or instrument which, when used offensively against a person, is likely to or actually does result in serious bodily injury; or

(3) A person or persons without legal justification by discharging a firearm from within a motor vehicle toward a person or persons.


An aggravated assault is a felony in the state of Georgia.  Depending on the situation, this charge carries with either a minimum one year, three year or five year jail sentence with a maximum of twenty years.  Again, depending on your situation, the conviction may carry substantial fines.


An aggravated battery ​is defined in the Official Code of Georgia, § 16-5-24 which states:


(a) A person commits the offense of aggravated battery when he or she maliciously causes bodily harm to another by depriving him or her of a member of his or her body, by rendering a member of his or her body useless, or by seriously disfiguring his or her body or a member thereof.


An aggravated battery is a felony in the state of Georgia.  Depending on the situation, this charge carries with either a minimum one year, three year, five year or even ten year jail sentence with a maximum of twenty years.
