Domestic Violence Battery

Under the California Penal Code, you may be arrested for battery if you use any force whatsoever, no matter how slight. A case of slight or no injury is usually charged as a misdemeanor. If your partner is injured, you may be charged with simple domestic battery, aggravated battery, or intentional infliction of corporal injury. Depending on the circumstances and the injuries involved, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Aggravated battery involves serious bodily injury to the victim. Intentional infliction of corporal injury involves injury which results in a traumatic condition. If the victim shows signs of any injury, even minor ones such as scratches or bruises, the defendant may be charged and convicted.
