Assault & Battery Law in Georgia

In the state of Georgia, assault and battery may be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the degree of the crime. For example, simple assault and battery are classified as misdemeanors, while aggravated assault and battery are generally charged as felonies. Regardless of the degree, the goal is to avoid conviction and the resulting criminal record, whenever possible.

The degrees of assault and battery include:

  • Simple Assault: An individual may face this charge for attempting to injure another person or putting them in a situation in which serious injury may result. Threatening to injure someone is enough to be charged with a violation of the law.
  • Aggravated Assault: An assault is aggravated when the individual commits assault with a deadly weapon or with the intent to rob, rape, or murder.
  • Simple Battery: When one person intentionally makes physical contact or intentionally causes harm to another, he or she may be charged with simple battery.
  • Aggravated Battery: The battery charge may be aggravated when a serious injury was intentionally inflicted on another, resulting in serious disfigurement or loss of a limb or the use of that limb. Serious disfigurement includes broken bones or scars that alter the person’s appearance.
  • Hate Crimes: Assault or battery may be charged as a hate crime if the victim was injured as a result of prejudice or bias.

The punishment for conviction depends on the degree of the charge and type of injury. This can range from up to a year in jail and fines of up to $1,000 for simple assault to up to 20 years in prison for aggravated battery.
