Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer- Whenever any person knowingly commits a battery upon a law enforcement officer that is lawfully performing his or her duties, the person may be charged with a third-degree felony which is punishable by imprisonment of up to 5 years, and/or fines of up to $5,000. If the battery is considered an aggravated battery, then the person will be committing a first-degree felony which is punishable by imprisonment of up to 30 years, and/or fines of up to $10,000.

Any person convicted of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer must be sentenced to a minimum term of imprisonment of 5 years. If, during the commission of the offense, a person possessed a firearm or destructive device, the person would be imprisoned for a minimum of 3 years and if the weapon was a semiautomatic firearm or a machine gun, the person would be imprisoned a minimum of 8 years.
