What Should I Know About Battery?
Although assault and battery are often grouped together, the two define separate offenses for technically different crimes. Assault requires no physical contact between the perpetrator and the victim, only the reasonably perceived threat of violence against the victim. Battery is the definite intentional unauthorized physical contact of one individual against another that results in physical harm.
Examples of battery include direct strikes against another person such as punches and kicks. A less conventional form of battery is tearing someone’s clothing garment because an individual’s clothing is in intimate association with that person.
- first-degree misdemeanor
- battery against special victims elevates the offense to a third-degree felony
- maximum of one year in jail
- a fine not to exceed $1,000
- up to one year of probation
When a battery culminates in disfigurement, permanent disability or great bodily injury to the victim the batterer is charged with a felony battery, regardless if the intent of the battery was to cause such substantial damage.
Domestic Battery by Strangulation
Committing a battery against a family member where the batterer restricts the normal functioning breathing patterns of the victim means the charge gets elevated to domestic battery by strangulation. This elevated status is because inhibiting one’s airflow or blood circulation increases their risk for grave bodily injury.
Aggravated batteries occur when the batterer attacks a pregnant woman, causes great bodily harm, permanent disfigurement or disability during the battery, or commits a battery with a deadly weapon. If a battery is committed using a firearm, penalties get intensified.
