 What is AOBH?

It is a crime to unlawfully assault someone and cause them bodily harm under section 339 of the Criminal Code (Qld).

 

An assault includes striking, touching, moving or otherwise applying force of any kind to a person either directly or indirectly without the other person’s consent.

 

To cause someone bodily harm, the injury must interfere with the health or comfort of the victim. Some identifiable bodily injury (for example a bruise, broken lip, cuts etc.) must be proven. A sensation of pain alone will not be enough.

 

What is the sentence for AOBH?

The maximum penalty is 7 years imprisonment. However, the maximum penalty increases to 14 years imprisonment if the defendant was or pretended to be armed with any dangerous or offensive weapon or instrument,  or was in company with 1 or more other person or persons.
