August 10th, 2017

One Fight can lead to Multiple Assaults
December 28th, 2015
A person can be convicted of assault if they intend to injure someone and they physically touch that person. During a fight, a person can hit someone multiple ways, such as pulling their hair, choking them, and punching them. Although there is one fight, each type of physical contact (hair pulling, choking, punching) constitutes a separate act of assault. Therefore, if someone gets in a fight and pulls the victim’s hair and chokes the victim, the person has committed two assaults.
