Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Personal Crimes – “Offenses against the Person”: These are crimes that result in physical or mental harm to another person. Personal crimes include:

    • Assault is an intentional act that causes a fear of imminent harmful or offensive touching. An assault can occur even if the contact never occurs. Since the act must be intentional, an accidental action won't amount to an assault. Also see the article What Is Assault?
    • Battery is an intentional physical contact or offensive touching, where the victim has not given consent to be touched. The physical touching must be offensive to a reasonable person.
    • False imprisonment is a restraint of a person in a bounded area without justification or consent. False imprisonment is a common-law felony and a tort. It applies to private as well as governmental detention.
    • kidnapping is the unlawful taking away or transportation of a person against that person's will, usually to hold the person unlawfully. This may be done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime, or in connection with a child custody dispute.
    • Homicide – crimes such as first and second degree, murder, and involuntary manslaughter, and vehicular homicide.
    • Rape, statutory rape, sexual assault and other offenses of a sexual nature
