Are Violent Crimes a Felony in Arkansas?

In Arkansas, violent crimes tend to be charged as felonies, and the Arkansas courts have a history of aggressive prosecution. Furthermore, the laws surrounding violent crime charges can be difficult to parse because of their complexity. Being charged with a violent crime is an overwhelming experience, and navigating the Arkansas judicial system can seem like an impossible task.

As a Bentonville violent crimes lawyer, I am committed to helping my clients through this difficult process using the knowledge I’ve gained as a long-time member of the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to provide aggressive yet passionate legal representation to my clients.

What Is Second Degree Battery?

2nd Degree battery is when someone purposely causes severe physical injury to another person, uses a deadly weapon (other than a firearm), and physically injures another person. Also, if a person recklessly causes serious physical injury to another person by using a deadly weapon, it is considered a second-degree battery. 

Additionally, when a person knowingly, without legal justification, causes physical injury to another person or incapacitates a known code enforcement officer, firefighter, employee of a correctional facility, or law enforcement officer acting in the line of duty, the law views it as a second-degree battery.
