Assault and Battery in Florida

Although assault and battery are sometimes used interchangeably, they are two, very different offenses. Assault is defined as the threat of causing, or attempt to cause injury to another, combined with the apparent ability to carry out that threat. The victim must have a well-founded fear that violence is imminent, but actual physical contact does not have to occur! By contrast, battery is committed when a person intentionally touches or strikes another person against their will or intentionally causes bodily harm to another. Battery may involve hitting, striking, slapping, or any other form of physical contact. Battery requires only that actual contact be made, without regard to the victim’s mental state.

Both assault and battery may be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. Penalties for a conviction can include long prison terms, jail time, probation, large monetary fines, restitution, and anger management classes. Hiring an aggressive Melbourne defense attorney to fight these charges is your best defense against these harsh penalties.
