Sexual Battery Charges Filed Against Ahmad Brooks

Posted on in Criminal Defense

Sexual battery charges have in fact been filed against Forty-Niner Ahmad Brooks. The Santa Clara County District Attorney filed misdemeanor charges against the football player, to which he has pleaded not guilty.

The sexual battery allegations stem from an incident at former Forty-Niner Ray McDonald's San Jose home in December of last year. Both men are alleged to have sexually abused a woman at the home while she was unconscious due to alcohol intoxication. McDonald has been indicted on felony rape charges and pleaded not guilty last Friday.

Brooks is facing misdemeanor charges of sexual battery. California Penal Code section 243.4 prohibits the offensive touching of the intimate part of another person for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification or for the purpose of physical abuse. It is punishable up to one year in county jail and a lifetime requirement of sex offender registration.

Such a charge can be filed as a felony if force was used or the victim was restrained. Prosecutors may also file felonies if the victim was touched while institutionalized or medically incapacitated. Felony sexual battery is punishable up to four years in the California State Prison.

Besides his criminal case Brooks is also being sued by the victim in civil court.
