Assault and Battery Attorneys in St. Pete and Pinellas Park

Assault and Battery: Why a Strong Defense Matters

A charge of assault or battery can greatly impact your life in a negative way. The stress of your situation can affect your career, your relationships, and your emotional health. Depending upon the severity of the charge, you may face a long prison sentence and expensive fines. Protecting your rights with a strong defense requires the services of a legal team familiar with Florida law. If you’ve been charged with assault or battery, contact a Florida defense attorney as soon as possible.

Understanding an Assault Charge

Florida law defines an assault as an intentional, unlawful threat to do violence to someone. In addition to the threat, the ability to carry out the threat or creating such fear in the other person that such violence is imminent can result in an assault charge. If convicted of a second-degree misdemeanor, you may face up to 60 days in jail, a fine of up to $500, or both.

When the charge is aggravated assault, it is often a felony with more serious consequences if convicted. Aggravated assault is an assault with a deadly weapon without an intent to kill or the intent to commit a felony. If found guilty of aggravated assault, possible penalties include up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, or both.

Understanding a Battery Charge

Florida law defines battery as an intentional touch or a strike to another person against their will. A battery charge is typically a first-degree misdemeanor with penalties of up to one year in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or both.

Felony battery involves an intentional touch or a strike to another person that results in bodily harm, permanent disability or permanent disfigurement. Another type of battery charge is domestic battery by strangulation. Like aggravated assault, felony battery and domestic battery by strangulation are third-degree felonies. If convicted, you may face up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, or both.
