The difference between an assault or battery crime is that in an assault the accused allegedly used an imminent threat of harm. The legal nuances of that are that the threat must be imminent and not over a phone, text, email, or letter. This is something that many prosecutors do not understand themselves sometimes.
A battery crime involves the intentional unwanted touching of any kind. The misunderstanding in battery cases is that many people think it must involve striking someone in their face. Criminal battery involves intentional and unwanted touching of any kind. According to law, even the slapping of someone’s hand may be considered battery if it is intentional.
