Aggravated Sexual Battery

Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer in Athens

While sexual battery is the act of touching another individual's genitals, buttocks or breasts against their will, aggravated battery involves using a foreign object (other than a penis) to penetrate the sexual organs or anus of another without his or her will. This is considered to be a serious offense, and can result in a lengthy prison sentence upon conviction. Fighting the charges with a skilled Athens sex crimes defense attorney is strongly recommended.

Aggravated Sexual Battery Laws

The sentence for an aggravated sexual battery conviction depends on the number of previous convictions on your record as well as the circumstances of the incident. As a felony offense, the penalties could include 25 years to life in prison, expensive fines and probation.

In addition, being convicted of aggravated sexual battery means you will be required to register as a sex offender. Registered offenders can face difficulties finding employment or even housing. Being a convicted felon can also result in the loss of certain civil liberties, such as the right to vote or own firearms.

A Charge Does Not Equal Conviction

Being charged with a serious crime, such as aggravated sexual battery, does not automatically mean you will be found guilty-but it is important to work with an Athens criminal defense lawyer who will deliver proactive counsel. Sex-related crimes carry a large social stigma, and you want to ensure you are able to mitigate the impact that an accusation has on your life.
