LOS ANGELES CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Battery charge in California occurs when there is a willful and deliberate touch to another person that is unwanted or harmful.  This includes kissing, poking, touching and even spitting.  The penalties for battery vary depending on the severity of the touch, if there was any damage inflicted, etc.  It is the intricacies of a battery charge that create so many gray areas.  For this reason, it is important to team up with a criminal defense lawyer who knows the ins-and-outs of battery charges.

These are the least punishments for misdemeanor battery in the state of California.

• Up to six months in county jail
• Up to $2,000 in fines
• Successful completion of Anger Management or a Batterer’s class
• Hours of community service
• Misdemeanor probation known as summary or informal probation

Fines and penalties can become quite steep depending on the case.  In California, assault and battery are two different cases; however, many a victim will try their hardest to get the battery charge increased to assault.  A skilled criminal defense attorney is aware of the necessary steps to either increase a charge or reduce a charge and is always your best route to take when handling legal matters.  Fill out a free consultation form to receive advice on your case and to learn about possible steps to take.
