Battery Laws In Indiana Are Complex.
Under Indiana law, an individual is charged with battery in cases involving physical contact. The level of offense ranges from a Class A Misdemeanor to a Level 1 or 2 Felony depending on the circumstances of your case. Factors that could aggravate or increase the severity of your charge include:
- Severity of the injuries involved
- Use of a deadly weapon
- Age of the person who was injured
- Your age
- If a person with a disability was involved
- Prior convictions on your record
- If the injured person is a police officer, school employee, health care provider or other protected class
Although domestic assault and battery cases are not charged as separate offenses in Indiana, they can have very serious consequences. A battery arrest and conviction could also impact your parental rights in custody disputes.
