Any physical contact with a person’s intimate body parts without their consent can be charged as sexual battery. In most cases, sexual battery is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of twelve (12) months in jail. There are exceptions, however. If the victim is under the age of sixteen (16), then the charge becomes a felony, punishable by one (1) to five (5) years in prison.
