Battery is the charged filed when it is alleged that a person intentionally threatened another with harm and assaulted them, causing physical injury. Battery charges are filed as a misdemeanor, except in cases in which it is alleged that a weapon was used in the commission of the crime, or the battery was committed on a child, government official, or federal law enforcement officer, or is committed on federal property, all of which could increase the level of the charges to a felony, or lead to charges being filed in federal court.
Misdemeanor battery (or menacing) has a penalty of $500 - $5,000 in fines, with up to 18 months of incarceration. For a lesser misdemeanor battery conviction, the penalties could be up to $750 in fines, with up to 6 months in jail. For assault, a felony charge, the penalties are far more extreme, and the prison time could be as long as 12 years, with a fine up to $750,000.
