These crimes usually carry felony convictions and depending on the degree, first or second, can lead to life sentences in prison. Sexual battery is non-consensual sexual touching of a person in a sexual way. While it is usually seen as a lesser crime in comparison, if there is bodily injury or a deadly weapon used, it can be classified as a felony. and the sentencing can vary.
