What are the Penalties for Assault & Battery Convictions in Florida?
Assault and battery are actually two different crimes that are often charged together. Assault can be either physical or emotional and refers to the threat of imminent harm that a victim experience. Assault does not have to mean that physical touch actually occurred because any threats of violence can be charged as an assault.
Battery, on the other hand, is physical contact between two individuals. Punching, shoving, hitting, biting, and all other forms of physical contact with the intent of causing harm to a victim can be charged as battery.
If you are tried and convicted of assault and battery in Florida, you could be facing harsh penalties, including:
- Jail or prison time
- Fines and restitution
- Mandatory community service
- Court-ordered classes and courses
