Alberta: Aggravated Assault,
Assault And Battery, and Domestic Violence
Serious punishment will always follow an indictable assault charge such as aggravated assault, assault and battery, domestic disputes, assault causing bodily harm, murder, and assault with a weapon. An individual who is charged with assault and battery is able to avoid a harsh punishment, or possibly recieve no punishment whatsoever, by pleading self-defense. However, in criminal assault cases, self-defense is merely a technicality and can be used on simple assault crimes as well as the more severe crimes such as murder or assault with a weapon successfully.

- Sexual assault charges
- Domestic violence charges
- Murder charges
- Uttering threats
- Obstructing peace officers
- Robbery charges
- Disorderly conduct charges
- Aggravated assault charges
- Conspiracy charges
- Weapons charges
- Public mischief charges
Domestic Assault Charges Make It Difficult to Avoid a Criminal Record
Domestic violence and spousal assaults are one in the same. Most cases end up being of “he said she said” situations, and the accused often have a disagreement as to the facts leading up to the altercation. Domestic violence assault cases receive charges already in existence under simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. With these charges, there is not a specified criminal code. A criminal record can be avoided by negotiating with the Crown to not only drop the charges but have the accused agree to an 810 peace bond, also known as a recognizance order – a type of restraining order.
