Florida Assault and Battery Charges

Assault Charge Lawyer in Orlando

If you’ve been arrested for Assault, Battery, Aggravated Assault, or Aggravated Battery, you are facing serious criminal charges with substantial penalties and possible jail time if you are convicted.

Many simple assault and battery charges are fights that got out of hand. And just because you were the person arrested doesn’t mean you even started the fight. It just means the other person called the police, or they simply decided to arrest all parties and sort it out later.

Aggravated Assault can also be charged aggressively by the District Attorney. An assault may be categorized as aggravated if you threw an object, even if you didn’t come close to or intent to hit the other person. If you throw a potted plant against a wall, that could be considered an aggravated assault. A kick with a shod foot may also be charged as a felony assault.

There are often good options to beat the case and dismissed entirely, or get charges reduced. Call us now and get your FREE consultation about your Florida Assault and Battery charges.
