Georgia Aggravated Battery Laws & Penalties

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.

As a felony offense, an aggravated battery charge has the potential to drastically impact your life. However, fighting your case may be possible. Depending on the circumstances of your incident, your lawyer may find you were acting in self defense, or that the victim was mistaken about your identity.

For aggressive and proactive defense for an aggravated battery charge, call (706) 705-5122. First consultations are free.
