Sexual Battery Charges in California

Sexual battery is considered the forceful and willful touching of someone sexually without their consent. This can involve sexual assault, rape, unwanted sexual contact, sexual advances towards minors in the household, not allowing a sexual partner to decline a sexual act or using sex as punishment. These are all serious charges that carry severe penalties if convicted. If facing a sexual battery offense, contact a qualified Los Angeles criminal lawyer who can assist you with taking the necessary legal actions to fight your charges.

California law takes sexual battery on a spouse or partner very seriously and aggressively pursues convictions. Even though there may have been consenting sexual contact previously, if a spouse accuses you of battery, law enforcement will investigate. Sometimes these charges are made in the heat of the moment, after a fight or disagreement, however even if your partner recants their domestic violence allegations, law enforcement will continue to pursue a conviction unless no evidence can be obtained to show the crime was committed.

Fighting Domestic Violence Charges in Los Angeles

A conviction of this charge could leave you in a county jail or even state prison, depending on the nature of the offense and the charges filed. In addition, harsh fines, community service, mandatory anger management counseling and a restraining order could be issued. With a serious enough offense, such as rape, there is also the likelihood of having to register as a sex offender in state and national data bases. This could seriously impact your life, showing you to be a sexual predator that will preclude you from being able to obtain employment and housing in the future.
