Common Assault Lawyers
Are you being charged with Assault? Our professional Common Assault Lawyers can help.
Common Assault or Section 39 Assault is an act of violence that causes minor injury which does not even have to be visible. It can also include the situation where a person is made ill through shock or depression or stress i.e. the injury can include a non-physical symptom. Sometimes the offence can be referred to as an offence of assault and battery. Charges of Common Assault can be dealt with in either the Magistrate's Court or the Crown Court.
For the best defence experienced Common Assault Lawyers are essential.
Common assault is defined as the defendant intentionally or recklessly causing another person to fear or apprehend immediate and unlawful violence. It is the causing of the fear of violence which is the assault, even if no violence is used. This is a very wide definition and can include an offence committed by words alone. This was illustrated in one appeal court case where a man's conviction was upheld after he had repeatedly made silent phone calls to a number of women. It illustrates the point that, even without violence being used, the causing of the immediate fear or apprehension of violence amounted to a common assault.
Battery is committed if a person intentionally or recklessly on applies unlawful force to another person. Once again this is a very wide definition and does not have to result in injury. People are regularly convicted of common assault for spitting on another person. There is no injury but it amounts to a common assault by beating.In order to be guilty of assault or battery, a person must either have to intend that physical force is used for fear, or being reckless as to whether either occurs.
