What does Assault And Battery mean?

Assault and battery can be considered two components of a single criminal offense. Assault is the intentional action or threat to cause injury or harm, by force, to another person. Battery is the intentional but unwanted touching of one person by another. A defendant can be charged with battery even if the unwanted touching does not or is not expected to cause injury.
