An Overview of Assault Charges in NV

While people regularly use the term “assault and battery” to describe the same criminal offense, they are actually two separate crimes. Nevada law defines assault as the act of intentionally making another person believe they are about to be physically harmed, while battery is the act of intentionally inflicting physical harm to another person through the use of unlawful force. Under these definitions, a person does not have to actually cause harm to another person in order to be charged with a crime. For all intents and purposes, assault is treated as attempted battery. Depending on the circumstances, assault charges can range anywhere from a misdemeanor offense to a Category B felony.

There are several different types of assault charges, including:

The exact crime that a person will be charged with will depend on a number of different factors, including whether or not a weapon was used, whether or not the victim was a member of a protected class, and the extent of the victim’s injuries. A conviction of simple misdemeanor assault can bring a relatively minor six months in jail and fines up to $1,000, while felony assault can carry as much as six years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.
