Assault & Battery Penalties
A person can be charged with assault and battery when the act of assault- a threat or attempt to harm another person- leads to physically striking the victim. Assault and battery are two separate crimes in Oklahoma, and they can be charged either separately or together. Threatening another person with physical harm can be grounds for an assault charge if a menacing action is taken to suggest immediate physical harm. Battery takes place when the suggestion leads to some sort of physical action. Assault, as well as assault and battery, carry varying punishments.
Assault is potentially punishable by:
- Up to 30 days in jail
- $500 fine
An Assault and Battery crime is punishable by:
- $1,000 fine
- Up to 90 days in Jail
