    Question: What is the penalty for assault and battery?

    Answer: The laws are different in every state, but are basically a crime. Punishment usually depends on how serious it was, if a weapon was involved, was the victim physically injured, etc. In many states a juvenile accused of assault can (or must) be tried as an adult. Penalties include jail, prison, probation, fines, restitution, community service and counseling. The Judge considers the age of the person, their record and the seriousness of the crime.

    My husband was confronted in Church, 3 times by a woman making disparaging remarks about me. He defended me "She is a good person". Minutes later, and charging from behind her husband screamed at my husband "I am going to puch you in the face....." Some bystanders were able to push him out of the way and restrain him, so my husband could escape. My husband left and in the parking lot, in the safety of his car, the perpetrator made obscene gestures and again screamed obseneties at my husband. We are staying away from Church. The priest says he cannot be involved. What are our legal options?
