Sexual Battery Charges & Penalties in Solano County
Sexual battery involves touching the intimate parts of another person against their will or without their consent. Sexual battery may occur in a number of circumstances:
- The victim is restrained
- The victim is unconscious and is therefore unable to resist
- The victim is institutionalized for medical treatment
- The victim is deceived into thinking the touching is for the purpose of medical diagnosis, care or treatment
- The victim is seriously disabled and cannot resist
- The victim is mentally disabled and cannot give his or her consent
Depending upon the circumstances, sexual battery may be a misdemeanor or a felony offense. Simple sexual battery involves touching another against his or her will, and this is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by up to 6 or 12 months in jail as well as fines. Battery involving violence, threats or the use of a position of authority may constitute a felony sexual battery charge and therefore imprisonment in state prison for an extended term.
