Scranton Battery Attorney

Person in handcuffs

Battery is a violent criminal offense that involves the actual striking, hitting, or touching of another person without their consent or against their will. It may also include touching something intimately associated with the victim, such as their clothing or a chair they may be sitting on. Battery may be entirely physical in nature and meant to cause injury, or it may be sexual in nature. Depending on the particular offense, whether the victim sustained any injury and to what degree, and whether a deadly weapon was used, a defendant may face increased charges and enhanced criminal penalties.
