Second Degree Sexual Battery Charges
Second degree sexual battery involves the same criminal acts as sexual battery, with aggravated circumstances. The offender must intentionally inflict serious bodily harm onto the victim. “Serious bodily injury” includes:
- Extreme physical pain
- Protracted and obvious disfigurement
- Protracted loss or impairment of the function of a bodily member, organ, or mental faculty
- A substantial risk of death
Penalties include imprisonment of no more than fifteen years without parole, probation, or the suspension of a sentence. An offender faces imprisonment at hard labor for 25-99 years when the victim is under 13 and the offender is 17 or older.
Oral Sexual Battery
Oral sexual battery is the same as sexual battery with the exception of the tool used to touch the anus or genitals. Oral sexual battery specifically involves the intentional touching of the anus or genitals of the victim or the offender by the offender’s or the victim’s mouth or tongue. The penalties are equal to those for sexual battery.
