A: Battery 2 is usually a felony. In Arkansas, depending on the alleged victim input, usually a probation offer from the State. You have to get the correct attorney also. Lots more we need to know to give you a better answer.

A: Nobody can answer that with any relevance to you except maybe a lawyer familiar with your prosecutor, judge, and facts of your case.

Where I practice you could be facing anything from probation to 6 months in jail and prison depending on the facts, judge, and prosecutor you get.
