However, if the assault and battery charges involve causing serious bodily harm or is upon a woman who is pregnant, then the punishments can be more severe. This is also the case if the assault and battery is upon a person who has “an outstanding temporary or permanent vacate, restraining or no contact order or judgment issued” against the accused already, according to the Massachusetts Legislature’s General Laws.
