The Facts About Violent and Domestic Crimes

The crime of battery occurs whenever a person

  1. Uses force against another
  2. Without permission, and
  3. With the intent to cause bodily harm.

Sentencing for a battery conviction depends on the criminal battery charge sought by the prosecuting attorney, which is directly related to the “Degree of Harm Intended,” and the “Degree of Harm Resulted.”

The greater the degree of intended or resulting harm, the more serious the charge, and the more serious the penalties. A simple battery is a misdemeanor, however, a substantial battery or an aggravated battery, intended to cause substantial bodily harm or death, is a felony. It is important to remember that the “force” used can be any contact at all that causes “pain,” no matter how minimal.

The crime of battery in Wisconsin is a Class A Misdemeanor which exposes you to up to 9 months in jail and a $10,000 fine.
