Sexual Battery Laws

Groping or touching the sexual organs of another person in a nonconsensual manner-whether he or she is clothed or not-can result in a sexual battery charge. In Georgia, sexual battery is generally considered to be a misdemeanor; however, committing sexual battery against an individual under the age of 16 raises the crime to felony status. The penalty for felony sexual battery can include one to five years in prison as well as fines and probation.

Even if you are only charged with a misdemeanor offense, being convicted of sexual battery will result in a permanent criminal record that can be seen by third parties, including nosy neighbors, schools, and even potential employers. Unfortunately, barring a gubernatorial pardon, getting this conviction expunged is impossible in Georgia.
