Penalties for Assault & Battery in Michigan
Assault entails threatening violence or attempting to physically attack another person, while battery is an attack that has been carried out. A simple example: If you threaten to punch someone, or if you throw the punch but miss, you have committed assault. Battery occurs if you actually punch the other person. The defendant must have the ability to carry out the attack in order for assault charges to be successful. If you make a threat that you couldn't possibly act on, you most likely cannot be convicted of assault.
For misdemeanor assault charges you could face:
- Up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine, or
- If serious injury occurred: Up to 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine
For a felony assault conviction, you could face:
a deadly weapon: Up to 4 years in prison and a $2,000 fine
- With intent to commit murder: Possible life sentence
