Therefore, assault does not necessarily have to involve any physical contact or physical injuries. On the other hand, battery involves intentional and unlawful force being used against another person - actual physical contact occurs.

What Are the Penalties for Assault & Battery in CA?
Violent crimes, particularly assault and battery, are some of the worst crimes to be charged with. While simple assault and battery are typically charged as a misdemeanor, more severe assault and battery crimes, particularly those involving a deadly weapon, can be charged as a felony offense.
If convicted of assault and/or battery, you could be facing:
- Costly fines
- Probationary restrictions
- Restitution for the victim
- Criminal record
In addition to this, having prior convictions on your criminal record may make these potential penalties even more severe.
