An Assault and Battery becomes a type of “aggravated assault and battery” when the victim is of an “aged or decrepit” state. This means the defendant does not have to intend to assault or batter an elderly person. Instead the state only has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an assault and battery occurred upon an elderly person by another who is of robust health and strength.
