Defending Against Assault Charges and Threat Allegations
Assault law is intricate, and the consequences vary based on the level of harm inflicted. Deliberate or reckless harm towards another person constitutes assault, with the extent of resulting injury influencing the severity of the offence. The tiers include Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH), Actual Bodily Harm (ABH), and Common Assault.
● Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH): Inflicting grievous bodily harm is the gravest form of assault, carrying severe consequences.● Actual Bodily Harm (ABH): Assault resulting in injuries that don't cause serious harm may lead to charges for ABH.● Common Assault: Involves unauthorized physical contact without requiring substantial injury, with police or prosecution not obligated to demonstrate injury.
