Accused of Aggravated Sexual Battery?
If you have been charged with aggravated sexual battery and found guilty, your reputation and family will be impacted for the rest of your life. But, there is a fine line between sexual battery and aggravated sexual battery. According to Kansas state law:
- Aggravated Sexual Battery: This is when unlawful force is used against a victim who is not your spouse and does not consent to your desires. It can happen in a home where you are not welcome; is possible when the victim is incapable of giving consent; or if the victim was unconscious or physically powerless. It is a felony with a 31- to 34-month prison sentence and has a mandatory sex offender registration.
