Aggravated Battery Laws

Aggravated battery is different than simple battery in that the perpetrator causes serious injury to the victim, such as the loss of a limb or disfigurement. Causing a broken bone or injuries that require extensive medical care can also be categorized as aggravated battery.

The penalties for aggravated battery can include:

  • Between 1 and 20 years in prison
  • Up to 20 years of probation
  • Fines up to $100,000
  • Financial restitution for the victims

There are some circumstances that can increase the minimum prison sentence. For example, committing battery on public transportation, or harming certain victims (such as individuals over the age of 65, on-duty law enforcement agents or family members) can result in a minimum of 3 to 10 years imprisonment.
