Penalties for Assault and Battery
Assault and Battery are both serious offenses. The penalty for each, if charged as misdemeanors, is six months in the county jail, and if done against a fire fighter or a police officer, the punishment is doubled to one year. If charged as a felony, the penalties are greatly enhanced depending on the severity of the injuries and other factors. You could receive up to three years of prison. If the victim in the battery case is harmed, the sentence is brought to three years up in the prison. If the weapon used is a firearm, then the sentence can further be increased to nine years.
