Understand the Penalties

Unlike assault, which only covers the threat and/or ability to commit violence and injury, battery is the illegal act of making physical contact with another person with an intent to harm that person. Taking action to physically harm someone almost always results in a criminal charge of battery (Penal Code 240-248). Assault may only be in consideration if a threat of violence came before the physical contact.

A conviction of criminal battery may result in the following:

  • Jail up to 6 months (misdemeanor) or 4 years (felony)
  • Fines up to $2,000 (misdemeanor) or $10,000 (felony)
  • Restraining order placed against you
  • Probation up to 3 years

Battery is no small criminal offense. Even a misdemeanor can carry significant penalties. Depending on the circumstances, a misdemeanor battery charge can be elevated into a felony and result in even harsher penalties.
