Definition of Assault

The Maryland criminal code considers any intentional physical act to cause injury to another person to be assault. This can be actual physical touchting that causes harm, as well as threatening or attempts to cause physical harm. To be charged with assault, the victim must be able to show that they were either injured or legitimately threatened, and that they had good reason to believe that you would carry through with that threat. There are several levels of assault charges with which you could be charged.

First degree assault covers attempts to cause physical harm, successfully causing physical harm, For an assault to rise to first degree, then the injuries to the plaintiff could be life threatening, permanent, or fatal,

Second degree assault is the category for assaults that are not as serious as those in the category of first degree. However, you may still suffer a loss in your quality of life as a result.


Battery is a type of assault. It involves unwanted physical contact with another person. In many cases, the defendant may not even mean to have harmed anyone. This category is mostly about whether there was consent to the contact. The plaintiff must only show that they did not allow or invite the contact, and that it was harmful in some way. Any contact that invades on the plaintiff’s comfort or dignity can also be considered battery.
