How Does California Law Define Sexual (Assault) Battery?

Knowledgeable Criminal Sexual Assault Lawyers offering expert legal services in California

The California Legislature defined battery in Penal Code section 242 as any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another. A battery is elevated to a sexual battery when certain facts are present.

California Penal Code section 243.4 broadly describes sexual battery as any touching of an intimate part of another person, against their will, for the purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of sexual battery. (Penal Code sections 243.4(a) through (e)(1)). This can lead to tragic consequences, especially among intoxicated young people.

A person may genuinely believe that someone else has invited sexual contact, and that belief could genuinely be incorrect. If the recipient of the unwanted touching is sufficiently upset, they may call the police to report the conduct. The police may take a report, make an arrest now, refer the case to the prosecutor, or all three.

What are the Penalties?

Penal Code section 243.4 is a “wobbler,” meaning it can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony. Any conviction, whether as a misdemeanor or a felony, can result in jail or prison time and registration as a sex offender. These are the maximum punishments listed for violations of Penal Code section 243.4:

Misdemeanor Simple Sexual Battery

Get Started with an Experienced Criminal Sexual Assault Attorney

Since more than a decade ago, the Kareem Law APC has represented clients accused of sex offenses. Sometimes, allegations and accusations of sexual assault are false because they are used as leverage during pending divorces, are inferred by school officials based on vague accounts by angry children, or are carried further than necessary by authorities who do not want to be responsible for denying a potential victim’s accusations, regardless of how frivolous or weak.

Questions To Ask When Choosing Your Criminal Defense Attorney

In California, sexual assault and abuse encompass all forms of nonconsensual sexual contact. Sexual offenses can be committed against both children and adults. They can be committed by individuals of the same gender as well as between partners. Sexual assault includes forced sexual contact, molestation of a minor, and attempted forced sexual contact.

As soon as a person is accused of criminal sexual assault or criminal sexual abuse, they must exercise extreme caution and retain competent counsel. The desire to assert one’s innocence to law enforcement can be used against you as an admission, which aids the prosecution. Therefore, having intelligent, aggressive, and skilled representation can be the difference between being charged with a sex crime and going home uncharged. Many of attorney Kareem A. Ramadan’s clients who were accused of sex crimes were released after he worked with detectives to fully comprehend the situation and challenge false police assumptions.

A conviction for any of these crimes will result in lifelong consequences, including prison sentences, temporary or permanent sex offender registration requirements, lengthy counseling periods, and hefty fines. Due to the stringent requirements of sex offender registration, many individuals convicted of federal sex crimes are in violation of their registration requirements. They are brought back to court years after their sentences have been completed.

The penalties associated with federal sexual offenses and the charges brought against you will depend on the nature of the offenses. When determining sentences and recommendations, the federal court and prosecutors consider the charged crime, the federal scoring level for the offense, the age of the defendant and the alleged victim, the likelihood of the defendant reoffending, and whether the person poses a threat to the community.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
