Defend Your Rights

Battery Lawyer in Long Beach, CA

Battery is the act of one individual against another individual, which causes physical or sexual harm or offense. This means that a flasher on the street could be convicted of battery. Generally, the act is classified as a misdemeanor, unless it is severe, in which it would be moved up to a felony. Anything from a slap across the face to a full out physical attack could be considered battery. Some areas define battery as an attack by the person or by something set in motion by the person. This means that a bottle thrown across the room could be classified as a battery attack, if the bottle hits someone. Since there are so many “could be’s” or “maybe’s” in the definition, you certainly don’t want to try to figure out for yourself if you have been a victim of battery.
