Simple Battery Walnut Creek CA

A battery occurs when a person offensively touches or harms another person. It’s important to understand that the touching does not have to actually cause any harm or injury at all. It’s also important to know that the touching of another person must be wilful. In other words if you accidentally trip and as you’re falling you bump into another person that is not a battery.

The maximum sentence for a simple battery is imprisonment in a county jail for 6 months and/or a fine of $2000. There are lots of variations of battery depending who the victim is and where the battery occurs. There is also a ten year restriction on owning firearms or ammunition if you are convicted of battery.
