Illinois Misdemeanor Battery Attorney
Class A misdemeanor battery charges are punishable by up to a $2,500 fine and up to 1 year in jail. A person commits the misdemeanor offense of battery if he or she knowingly without legal justification by any means causes bodily harm to an individual or makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with an individual. See, 720 ILCS 5/12-3. Local ordinance based battery charges also can allege the causing of bodily harm or making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature, but do not carry possible jail sentences.
Your Defense -- Aggravated Battery Charges
Unlike the charge of battery which, if not charged as an ordinance violation, is a misdemeanor offense, the charge of aggravated battery is a felony offense with a possible sentence to the Illinois Department of Corrections. The Illinois aggravated battery law encompasses a wide array of alleged criminal behavior and divides itself into seven major categories. These categories include acts of aggravated battery based on:
--Type and severity of the injury caused
--Location where the aggravated battery occurred
--Status of the victim
--Use of a firearm
--Use of a weapon or other device
