Savannah Battery Lawyer

Protecting Your Rights Is Our Priority

Battery charges are filed when it is alleged that another person suffered substantial physical harm in an attack. The injuries that could lead to a battery charge include facial injuries such as swollen lips, black eyes, or bruising to the body. A first offense could be filed as a misdemeanor, but this decision will be made by the prosecutor based on the extent of the victim’s injuries as well as the accused’s criminal record.

A second conviction for battery against the same victim will carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 days and as long as 1 year in jail and fines up to $1,000. A third battery charge against the same person will be filed as a felony. Some battery charges are family-related domestic violence cases.

There are two sides to every story, and we want to hear from you about what occurred. Our Savannah criminal defense lawyers are on your side and are ready to fight for you.

Battery Against Teachers, Long-Term Care Workers & Sports Officials

If it is alleged that a teacher or other employee in an educational facility was injured, you can face fines as high as $10,000 and up to 5 years in state prison. If the battery is alleged to have been committed against a resident of long-term care facility, the crime will carry punishments including up to $2,000 in fines and 5 years in prison. A battery offense involving an elderly person over 65 is a serious matter in Georgia. If it is alleged that the battery was committed against a person officiating at any amateur sports event, there will be heavier penalties. These charges are filed as "aggravated battery."
