Assault & Threats

An assault charge deals with an allegation that someone applied force to another person without their consent. Conduct which constitutes an assault can be as little as a shove or push or much more serious physical contact such as a punch or choking. Assaults that result in bodily harm or that involve the use of a weapon are more serious and carry with them more serious penalties upon conviction.

Threatening charges involve words spoken that amount to a threat to cause a person bodily harm or death. It is the words uttered that make out the offence and there is no requirement for any physical interaction to occur for their to be a criminal charge. The person hearing or receiving the threats need not be the person who is the target or focus of the threats for the offence to be made out.
