Reno Assault and Battery Lawyer
In the state of Nevada, assault and battery are considered two separate crimes. Assault has been defined as an effort or threat of bodily injury. Battery on the other hand is the actual act of carrying out this threat of intimidation. These charges vary or are altered depending on the extent of bodily injury, the condition of the offense or whether or not a weapon was utilized during the crime. These conditions can determine whether the accused may face a felony charge or a misdemeanor.
