We take on sexual battery cases throughout all of Fairfax County and Prince William County in Virginia.
Virginia law enforcement and prosecutors will show no leniency to a person who has been accused of sexual battery. A skilled defense lawyer can make all the difference in the outcome of your case and can help you avoid the many penalties associated with a conviction, including the lifelong penalty of sex offender registration. This alone can forever damage your reputation and govern where you can live and work, effectively labeling you as a “pervert” or “sexual deviant” for life.
Sexual Battery Charges in Fairfax and Prince William, Virginia
Sexual battery is a criminal offense which, according to Virginia law, involves the sexual abuse of another through the use of threats, force, and intimidation or by ruse (a trick or plot.) Sexual abuse involves acts committed with the intention of sexually molesting, arousing or gratifying a person. This can be committed by touching the intimate parts (or the clothing directly covering these parts) of the victim, or forcing the victim to touch the intimate parts of the accused or of another person.
Simple sexual battery, not involving a young child, repeated offenses or injury, will most likely be charged as a misdemeanor offense in Virginia, where the maximum penalties include up to 12 months in jail, fines, probation, sex offender registration, community service and more.
