One of the most common criminal charges in the State of Florida includes assault and battery. While often referred to as “Assault and Battery”, these are actually separate criminal offenses.

Assault occurs when an action or a threat places someone in imminent fear of violence. Assault does not require physical contact.

Battery occurs when an individual intentionally touches or strikes another against their will.

Assault and battery crimes often occur as a result of the escalation of a disagreement between two or more individuals, or in domestic disputes.

It is not uncommon for an individual who was defending another person or their own personal safety to be the one facing assault and battery charges. While being attacked or defending another person, sometimes conditions are such that the attacker does not leave any visible marks on the victim, while the person acting in defense left a visible mark on the attacker. In the event there is a lack of witness to the event, after assessing the facts and evidence immediately available, law enforcement may deem it necessary to arrest the person who inflicted visible signs of physical aggression.

It is important to remember that an assault and battery charge is considered a felony, which includes penalties which are much more severe than that of a misdemeanor criminal charge.

Depending upon the specific assault or battery criminal charges an individual may be facing, a criminal history, and any other special circumstances, an assault or battery criminal conviction may result in:

  • Hefty fines;

  • Potential jail or prison time;

  • Suspension of your driving privileges;

  • Community service;

  • Lengthy terms of probation;

  • Forfeiture of certain basic civil rights.
