Your daughter needs the services of a competent criminal defense attorney. Without it, she could very well be convicted of this charge. I strongly urge you to retain local counsel to assist her.
That was a very long sentence. Anyone charged with any crime needs to get a private criminal defense attorney in my opinion. The attorney will defend your daughter diligently. Get one.

An alleged victim's statements implicating your daughter, (even without other evidence), may very well constitute sufficient evidence to support a conviction. I agree with my colleague -your daughter needs good local counsel. If she is currently unrepresented, I would encourage her to hire counsel sooner rather than later.
My colleagues are all correct, you need to hire an attorney for your daughter. A misdemeanor battery charge is punishable by up to one year in jail. An attorney working for you early on can ensure that the prosecutor has all the relevant facts and can often influence how the prosecutor proceed. Not only that, he/she can start advising you, negotiate an early resolution with the prosecutor, prepare your daughter's defense if necessary, etc. Hiring an attorney can also take a lot of stress off your shoulders. Good luck to you!
