What is assault in the eyes of the law?
According to: http://legaldictionary.net/assault, the legal term “assault” means an attempt by one person to cause serious bodily harm to another person.
This harm may be through a deliberate act, or through irresponsible actions that show a deliberate lack of respect for the victim’s safety. The definition of assault also includes carrying out a threat of bodily harm, or having the ability to carry out the threat. Assault is both a crime and a civil wrong, and it may result in criminal charges and/or civil liability.
What is violence?
Violence comes in many forms. Each form is as serious as the other. In the eyes of the law, an act of violence is unacceptable. It may lead to criminal charges and accompanying penalties, including incarceration or imprisonment if the courts find you guilty. If police charge you with violence, or put you under investigation for an act of violence, you must obtain legal help.
