The prior answer is correct. The maximum fine is $1,000.00 per an offense and 1 year of probation per an offense. However, battery is also an enhanceable offense. If your son resolves these cases, he may be subjecting himself to a future felony battery charge if ever involved in this type of alleged criminal behavior. From what you are stating, it would seem like a good idea to have your son represented by an attorney. These criminal charges could affect his future significantly.
