Simply put, assault and battery is the combination of two violent crimes: assault (the threat of violence) and battery (actual physical violence).
In order to prove that the defendant is guilty of having committed an intentional assault and battery, the Commonwealth must first prove three things beyond a reasonable doubt:
New laws that target domestic assault and battery have changed the legal landscape. People are always amazed when they contact the local police to diffuse a family argument and someone leaves in the back of a cruiser charged with domestic assault and battery. They expect to appear in court and explain the situation and are amazed when actual criminal charges enter. Stiffer laws attempting to protect against domestic violence have caught many families off guard, facing the embarrassment of a criminal record and public notice.
