The Impact of Sexual Battery Charges in Metro Atlanta & West Georgia

Sexual battery is a sex crime that occurs when an individual intentionally acts to make physical contact with the genitals or other sexual parts of a victims' body such as the breasts, thighs, buttocks, and others, without the consent of the victim.

While most sexual battery charges are misdemeanors, certain circumstances may warrant a felony charge such as in cases where the victim is less than 16 years of age. These charges require skilled and actionable representation and a Douglas County criminal defense attorney with Howard and Arca Attorneys at Law is in the best position to help.

There are two distinct types of sexual battery that an individual may be subjected to:

  • The first is basic sexual battery which becomes an option when an individual intentionally makes physical contact with the victim. This is traditionally a misdemeanor charge, although prison sentences of up to 5 years may be imposed when the victim is less than 16 years of age with additional penalties for subsequent convictions.
  • Aggravated sexual battery is more serious and occurs when a victim is penetrated with a foreign object. The penalties for aggravated sexual battery are extreme, offering as much as life in prison for the offense. An effective criminal defense is essential to reaching any kind of favorable conclusion in the face of these charges.
