Sexual Battery Laws in VA

According to Virginia Code §18.2-67.4, sexual battery is a misdemeanor. If convicted, one could face consequences could include jail time for up to 12 months, a maximum $2, 500 fine, financial restitution to be paid to the victim, and a negative reputation.

Prosecutors must prove that all of the elements as stated in the statute apply to the case before they can secure a conviction. They must be persuasive and demonstrate that the evidence clearly shows sexual battery occurred.

Sexual battery might involve the following elements:

  • Intentionally touching another person’s private areas
  • Using threats, intimidation, or force on someone to commit sexual abuse
  • Forcing the victim to touch the one’s private body parts or of another person’s
  • Touching another the intention of arousing, sexually molest, or find sexual gratification
  • Touching another person against his or her will
