What is California Simple Battery?

Riverside Simple Battery Attorney

Domestic violence is a serious crime and very little evidence is needed to charge someone with the offense. In the state of California, all that is needed for officers to place a person into custody is a statement from the alleged victim and a small amount of evidence of violence. This means a spouse may call the police if you two were involved in an altercation and you made the threat to "beat them up" or pushed them out of your way. Under California Penal Code Section 243, you may be charged with simple assault and face serious penalties without the assistance of an attorney.

Domestic violence can be charged against someone no matter how small the injury may be. If a spouse, significant other or any person that you have had a sexual relationship with comes forth and states that you physically or mentally abused them in any way, you may be facing domestic violence charges.
