The charge of Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer is an accusation that a battery was committed either with a weapon used or threatened to be used in a manner likely to cause great bodily harm or death or by intentionally causing great bodily harm or death on a police officer, deputy sheriff, or other law enforcement officer. These charges are treated quite seriously by the state because of the alleged victims' status as a law enforcement officer or "LEO".
It's important to note that the upgraded charge of Aggravated Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer only applies when the battery occurs while the alleged victim is carrying out official duties. If the LEO was not engaged in official duties, then the case must be treated as if the alleged victim was an ordinary civilian.
