Battery is the intent to commit an assault and succeeding. This means that you wanted to and tried to hit or hurt someone, and you succeeded. In city courts all over Colorado, battery charges can carry a sentence of up to one year in the county jail, and/or up to a $1,000 fine, or both.
Sometimes, (if you are lucky) you may just get away with up to 60 days in jail and probation for a term of years. Some probation departments will require you to perform random alcohol or drug testing, community service hours, anger management classes, get rid of your prized gun collection, visit your probation officer weekly, and the list goes on and on.
It is very common to see assault charges filed in a battery case in Aurora or Denver. These cities have huge prosecution offices and large amount of police and they understand that the more charges they file against you, the more likely you will cave in and give up and plead guilty to one of the charges.
Battery as Domestic Battery Charges in Colorado
It is also common to see battery charges filed as "domestic violence". This means that law enforcement believe that you were attacked or pushed or hurt your domestic partner. In domestic violence cases in Colorado it does not matter whether your spouse is a man or a woman. As long as the police feel that you struck or shoved your partner, then they will file domestic violence battery charges in Lakewood, Littleton, Westminster or Brighton and now you are facing the possibility of losing your job and being forced to live outside of your home without any contact with your loved ones.
