Assault is a very serious offence in Queensland and the consequences of a conviction for this type of offence can be devastating. It is therefore important that you know your rights and what options are available from a very early stage.
What is Assault?
‘Assault’ occurs when a person strikes, touches, moves or otherwise applies force of any kind to another person without consent. The application of the force can be either direct or indirect and the mere attempt or threat of assault can be enough.
There are various assault charges including the relatively minor offence of common assault to the much more serious offence of assault occasioning bodily harm.
Assault charges are either heard in the Magistrates Court or the District Court, depending on the actual charge and the seriousness of the offence.
