Battery Defense Lawyer in Orange County

Criminal Defense Attorney for Battery Charges

Battery is a violent crime that involves intentionally striking, hitting or touching another person against their will, for the purpose of causing injury, annoying, harassing or abusing the victim. Battery is often confused with assault, as defendants often face criminal charges for both assault and battery. Assault involves the attempt or threat of violence and battery involves carrying out the threatened act.

Although you may be at risk of facing imprisonment and a criminal conviction at this time, an Orange County criminal defense lawyer experienced with handling battery charges can work to protect your freedom and legal rights. Depending on the stage of your case and the particular circumstances involved with the alleged offense, your attorney may be able to effectively help you avoid a conviction or formal charges altogether.

Accused of battery in Orange County?

If you’ve been accused of battery in Orange County, you may be at risk of facing misdemeanor charges and various penalties if you are convicted. Simple battery may be punishable by informal probation, up to 6 months in county jail, a fine of up to $2,000 and the completion of a batterer’s program. If a deadly weapon was used or the victim suffered serious physical injury, a defendant may face felony charges for aggravated battery. This may mean that the defendant will face 2, 3 or 4 years in state prison, formal probation and the possibility of a “strike” on his or her criminal record. A single strike will increase the potential penalties associated with future violent or serious felony convictions, doubling the penalties for a second strike and possibly enforcing 25 years to life in prison for any third felony conviction.
