“Battery” is a deliberately touching a person (or something closely attached to said person) that is offensive or harmful to that individual. “Simple assault” is an act which leads a person to reasonably assume that a battery will be imminent. An attempted battery is also considered an assault. Michigan law specifies several categories of assaults, based on the circumstances of the assault and the severity of the abuse suffered by the victim. A “simple” assault and battery is a misdemeanor, 93 days in jail and fines of up to $500 are the possible. Usage of a weapon during an assault or battery would raise the charges to the level of a felony.
