Sexual Battery

Sexual Battery in Riverside County

Call for Experienced & Skilled Legal Representation

California's sexual battery law, Penal Code 243.4 PC, prohibits touching the intimate part of another person for sexual gratification, arousal, or abuse. Since this sex crime is associated with severe penalties, an individual facing conviction must retain legal counsel from an experienced and reliable attorney.

At the Law Office of Nicolai Cocis, we are committed to helping our clients either get their charges reduced, or their cases dismissed altogether. With nearly 20 years of legal experience, our Temecula criminal defense lawyer can thoroughly review your case and determine all of your available legal options to pursue the justice you deserve.

Penalties for Sexual Battery

Unlike rape, sexual battery does not require that the offender engages in actual penetration or sexual intercourse with the victim. This sex crime can be either a misdemeanor or a felony.

Misdemeanor sexual battery includes intentionally fondling a female stranger's breast without permission or putting your hands on someone else's rear-end without obtaining consent. Misdemeanor sexual battery is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year, as well as a fine of up to $2,000.

Felony sexual battery includes holding someone down while you put your hand inside their undergarments, as well as forcing someone to masturbate or touch one of your private parts. Felony sexual battery is punishable by a prison sentence of either two, three, or four years and a maximum fine of $10,000.
