Battery Crimes in Illinois

Representation from a Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney

Although assault and battery are often grouped together in the criminal defense world, battery is actually quite different. A person can be charged with battery when they intentionally cause bodily harm to another individual. This can manifest itself in a number of different ways, which may affect the severity of the penalties. Aggravated battery is a more serious form of the same crime.

Any of the following acts may be considered aggravated battery:

  • Use of a deadly weapon
  • Knowing that the harmed individual is pregnant
  • Concealed identity during the offense
  • Knowing that the harmed person is 60 years or older
  • Is on public property during the incident

If you have been charged with battery, turn to the Law Offices of Mitch Furman. I consistently strive to achieve the best for my clients and have over a decade of legal experience. With a strong understanding of Illinois law, you don't have to turn to any other criminal defense attorney in Chicago.
