Battery

Virginia Beach Battery Attorney

What are the Consequences of a Battery Charge in Virginia?

The crimes of simple assault and assault and battery are charged and convicted under the same section of law and with the same penalties. The situation can change, however, if there are aggravating circumstances. If the defendant committed battery against a police officer, teacher, healthcare provider, emergency medical technician, fireman, or other such individual, the offense could escalate to a Class 6 felony.

When no aggravating factors are involved, battery is charged as a Class 1 misdemeanor, which can incur a penalty of:

  • Up to 12 months in jail
  • Maximum fine of $2,500
