In basic legal terms, simple battery is a misdemeanor. It is any type of physical contact with another person, to which that other person has not consented. The law diferentiates between different degrees of battery to determine how severe the punishment should be. But if you’ve suffered at the hands of a law enforcement officer, you don’t stop to think about the complexities of a legal definition. Certainly, you simply know that you were victimized. Let us handle the intricacies of the law and bring your violators to justice.

Cases of police battery do not always have to be so extreme in order to be proven. Offensive touching can constitute a battery even if it does not cause injury. For example, if a police officer repeatedly pokes you in the chest while loudly emphasizing a point, or spits on you they may be charged with battery.
