Battery Charges & Their Corresponding Penalties

There are various types of battery charges; simple battery, felony battery, and aggravated battery. To convict an individual of simple battery, the prosecution needs to prove that the individual intentionally struck or touched the victim against the victim’s will and without the victim’s consent. The individual may be charged with felony battery if the individual has been previously convicted of battery. The individual may be charged with aggravated battery if the prosecution can prove the individual used a deadly weapon or if he intended to cause serious bodily injury to the victim.

  • Aggravated battery. This is a second-degree felony. The defendant may face a fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment for up to 15 years.
