Battery is a type of violent crime, which is one of the most severe charges you could be facing. A violent crime is when someone uses force or the threat of force against someone else. If you are charged with this kind of crime, the last thing you want is to be fighting the charge alone. If convicted, you will be up against some severe consequences.

Working with the team at the Law Office of Jesse Hernandez will give you the highest odds of lessening the consequences or beating the charge altogether.

What is a Battery Charge?

Getting charged with battery is no light situation. Battery involves intentionally touching another individual in an angry, forceful, or aggressive way.

Battery and assault are considered two different crimes in Texas. Assault is threatening another person, while battery involves the actual actions and physical contact with the other person that causes the injury.

Possible Battery Penalties

The possible penalties for your battery charge, if convicted, depend on the severity of the crime committed. Class C misdemeanors involve threatening a victim with harm, which can involve a fine of up to $500. Class B misdemeanors are less common, and they occur when a non-sports-related individual threatens a sports participant with a sort of bodily harm. This can result in up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.

Finally, a class A misdemeanor occurs when the individual actually causes physical harm to another individual, which then becomes known as battery. This can result in up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000.

Regardless of the charge you’re facing, our team is confident that they can help lessen your charge and increase your chances of walking free.
