Domestic Battery Vs Aggravated Battery in Indiana

In Indiana, domestic battery and aggravated battery differ primarily in context and severity. Domestic battery involves physical harm or touching in a rude, insolent, or angry manner directed at a family or household member, emphasizing the domestic relationship between the perpetrator and victim. Aggravated battery involves more severe physical harm and does not necessarily involve a domestic relationship. It includes actions that result in serious bodily injury, substantial risk of death, permanent disfigurement, or protracted loss or impairment of bodily function. While Domestic Battery focuses on the relationship and context of the crime, aggravated Battery focuses on the degree and impact of the injury inflicted.
