Owner and Employee of Local Atlanta Tattoo Shop Arrested On Different Charges

Posted by Richard Lawson | Oct 27, 2018 | 0 Comments

Both the owner and one of his employees were arrested in two different incidents this past Wednesday at a local Metro Atlanta tattoo parlor. Brandon Bond, the owner, and Nicholas Gamboa, an employee, of All or Nothing Tattoo have been accused of different offenses. 

Bond was arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at a group of teenage boys that were customers of his shop. Gamboa was arrested for sexual battery after allegedly groping a woman who came in for a piercing. 

As an Atlanta Criminal Lawyer, I will outline the offense of sexual battery in today's post. 

Sexual Battery in Georgia

The Georgia Code defines sexual battery in Georgia in the following statute:

A person commits the offense of sexual battery when he or she intentionally makes physical contact with the intimate parts of the body of another person without the consent of that person. O.C.G.A. §16-6-22. 

If convicted of sexual battery, the offense is classified as a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature. However, if the offense was against a child under the age of 16 years old, then the crime is elevated to a felony. Moreover, if it is a second or subsequent conviction, the crime will also be classified as a felony. Felony sexual battery can carry a penalty of up to five years in prison.

Practice Note

Sex Crimes in Georgia are highly stigmatized leaving most people under the impression that the accused person must be guilty of committing the accused offense. This is highly incorrect and can actually cause a lot of damage to a person's reputation.
