Understanding Aggravated Battery Charges
Illinois defines battery as causing bodily harm or simply making physical contact with someone in an offensive or provoking manner. As such, you can be convicted of battery even if you did not physically injure anyone.
There is a fine line between battery and aggravated battery in Illinois. The law is written in such a way that many forms of battery could technically be considered aggravated battery.
Generally, aggravated battery could involve:
- Intentionally or knowingly causing serious bodily harm or disfigurement
- Using a deadly weapon to injure someone
- Committing battery while wearing a hood, robe, or mask to conceal identity
When aggravated battery is committed against someone known to be a police officer, the charges and consequences are further heightened.
A person can be charged with aggravated battery of a police officer if they:
- Cause serious bodily harm to a known police officer or other type of law enforcement/peace officer
- Injure a police officer in the course of that officer’s official duties
- Injure a police officer in an effort to prevent that officer from performing their official duties
- Batter a police officer as a form of retaliation for the officer’s official duties
