Los Angeles Sexual Battery Lawyer

Sex Crime Lawyer In Los Angeles

Sexual battery is defined under California state law as touching the intimate parts of another person without the consent of the victim. The term “intimate parts,” refers to the genitalia, buttocks or the female breasts. A condition that is required for a sexual battery charge is that the touching was done for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification or abuse.

This offense is a “wobbler,” meaning that it can either be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, but in either case a conviction will mean that you will be subject to 290 registration as a sex offender for the rest of your life.

California Penalties For Sexual Battery

If you are convicted of misdemeanor sexual battery, you can be held in county jail for up to a year and forced to pay fines as much as $2,000. Felony sexual battery carries penalties as high as 4 years in state prison and $10,000 in fines. Several factors will influence the final sentence if you are found guilty, such as whether you are accused of committing the act through the use of force or restraint, whether the victim was conscious at the time of the act and whether the victim was a minor.

When you face prosecution for such a serious crime, you need the support and advice of a hard hitting Los Angeles sex crime lawyer to guide you through the case to a successful resolution. A conviction could mean that your life will never be the same again, so you need to do everything possible to avoid this outcome.
