Battery Versus Spousal Battery
Battery is any willful or unlawful use of force or violence on someone. This misdemeanor crime is considered spousal battery when you use force or violence against someone you are in a relationship with, the parent of your child, a former significant other, or a cohabitant in your home. This conviction is more serious and can lead to possibly more jail time or fines.
What is Corporal Injury?
The crime of corporal injury involves the same people whom you have a relationship with or cohabitate with, but you must have inflicted an injury on them to be convicted of this crime, or they suffered a traumatic condition. This can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the injury, which means the penalties vary on each type of charge too. Whatever the case, a corporal injury charge is serious and requires the expertise of a criminal defense lawyer in Phoenix.
