Assault & Battery Charges in Maryland

Generally, assault is a threat of force or violence, while battery is actual contact with the victim and causing physical harm. Maryland law uses the term assault to refer to both assault and battery. There are different degrees of assault crimes, which range from misdemeanors to felonies.

Assault and battery charges in Maryland include:

  • First degree assault
  • Second degree assault
  • Assault on a police officer
  • Reckless endangerment

Assault is typically a misdemeanor, but charges can be elevated to felonies in certain situations, such as when the alleged victim suffers serious bodily injury or when a firearm was used in committing the assault. Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you need a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to develop an effective defense strategy and protect your rights throughout the legal process.
