Unlike the other aggravated battery charges on this site, aggravated battery on a pregnant person does not require the use of a deadly weapon or great bodily harm. Aggravated battery on a pregnant person is just a simple battery where the alleged victim is pregnant at the time of the battery and the defendant knew or should have known that the alleged victim was pregnant at the time of the battery. It's a much lower standard than the other aggravated battery charges, but the penalties are just as severe.
A misdemeanor battery offense may be upgraded to an aggravated battery simply because the victim was pregnant. That means any unwanted touching regardless of injury becomes a felony.
Aggravated battery on a pregnant person is a second degree felony punishable by up to fifteen years in prison, probation, or a combination of both and a fine of up to $10,000.00. Additionally, if the alleged victim and the defendant were in a qualified relationship, then it may be categorized as a domestic violence crime with additional statutory penalties.
