Under Saskatchewan’s assault and battery laws, any unwanted or nonconsensual physical contact could be classified as assault. Potential assault charges can include, but are not limited to:
- Aggravated assault
- Assault causing bodily harm
- Assault with a weapon
- Simple assault
When defending against assault charges, a lawyer may be able to invoke self-defense—depending on the circumstances of the situation, Canadian law allows for some accommodation. While claiming self-defense can be a very complex and overwhelming task, it has been successfully applied to cases spanning a range of assault charges.
