Battery Resulting In Substantial Bodily Harm

Any Battery offense charged in Las Vegas, Nevada which results in Substantial Bodily Harm is a Felony. A Battery resulting in Substantial Bodily Harm conviction carries with it a potential 1-15 year prison sentence and fines of up to $10,000. Nevada Revised Statute “NRS” 0.060 defines Substantial Bodily Harm as “Bodily injury which creates a substantial risk of death or which causes serious, permanent disfigurement or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ; or prolonged physical pain.” It is important to note, the second part of that definition “prolonged physical pain.” A “Simple” Battery Misdemeanor could be upgraded to a Felony Battery resulting in Substantial Bodily Harm by the District Attorney if the alleged victim complains of lingering pain from a seemingly minor injury. With this language in mind, it is crucial to contact Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney Michael A. Troiano as soon as possible to discuss the facts of your case. Without the counsel of an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney on your side, the results could be drastic.
