Ottumwa Assault Lawyer

Assault refers to threatening someone with immediate harm. You don't have to actually make physical contact with another person to be charged with assault. The person who is assaulted must be in fear of immediate bodily injury, however. If you threaten someone with a weapon but never use it, you are guilty of assault. When you actually use force or violence against another, such as hitting, punching, or otherwise physically harming someone, you have committed the crime of battery. You can be charged with both assault and battery as separate charges.
