Battery and California Law

At RLPC, based in Los Angeles, we focus on providing robust defense for those accused of battery, a charge that carries significant consequences under California law.

California Penal Code Section 242: Defining Battery

Battery, as generally defined in California Penal Code Section 242, describes a range of offenses. For a prosecutor to establish guilt in a battery case, it is essential to prove that the defendant engaged in unwanted and offensive physical contact. The severity of these charges can escalate based on specific circumstances surrounding the incident.

A battery conviction, which is often classified as a violent crime, can lead to severe penalties. These may include probation, community service, anger management classes, monetary fines, and potentially, jail or prison time. Additionally, a judge might order restitution payments to any victim(s). 

Types of Battery Offenses:

  • Simple Battery: Basic unwanted physical contact.
  • Aggravated Battery: Involving serious bodily harm or use of a weapon.
  • Domestic Battery: Battery committed against a family member or intimate partner.
  • Sexual Battery: Unwanted physical contact of a sexual nature.
