Assault Offences


John Sutton

Generally speaking, an assault is the use of any force, or threat to use force, against a person that is not consented to.

In Victoria, most assault offences are contained in the Crimes Act 1958, however some are also found in the Summary Offences Act 1966.

The seriousness of an assault will usually determine under which law the police will prosecute.

The following pages have been designed to inform you of the most common types of assault charges and the penalties available to the Court.
