Simple Battery Defense Attorney in Roswell

Contact a Roswell Criminal Defense Lawyer

Georgia law defines simple battery as intentionally causing physical harm to another person, including any contact of an insulting or provoking nature. For example, hitting or pushing someone during an argument, or grabbing someone and holding them by the arm would be considered simple battery. Additionally, throwing something that strikes someone can be simple battery. We have handled cases where an object like a ball, a spoon, or a chair was thrown at a person, and the charge was simple battery.

Simple battery is a misdemeanor with a sentence of up to one year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. However, aggravating circumstances can raise this charge to a misdemeanor of high and aggravated nature.

Examples of such aggravating circumstances include:

  • The victim is a law enforcement officer or law enforcement dog on duty
  • The crime falls under Georgia law as "domestic" (i.e. past or present spouses, children, etc.)
  • The victim is pregnant at the time, over 65, an official at an amateur level sporting event, or a public school employee on duty or on school property
  • The crime is committed by a staff member of a long-term care facility against a patient
  • The crime occurred in a public transport vehicle or station

Multiple offenses can result in a felony charge rather than a misdemeanor. If the victim has been substantially or visibly harmed, the charge would be considered battery as opposed to simple battery.
