Santa Clarita Battery Attorney

Facing Battery Charges in Santa Clarita?

Battery is a very serious charge and carries heavy penalties in a conviction, particularly if the incident involves injury. Although assault and battery are often charged together, they are actually separate crimes. The penalties you could face if convicted of battery include fines, and time served in jail or prison, as well as other requirements, based upon the facts of the case. Battery can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, and this is a crucial piece of the puzzle for your Santa Clarita battery lawyer.

Assault differs from battery in that it is actually a threat of violence. Battery, however, requires actual contact which may or may not be alleged to have caused injuries. Battery also includes the intention of harming the individual with whom the physical contact is being made.
