About Assault & Battery Charges in Florida

Assault and battery are considered to be two separate offenses in the eyes of Florida law. Assault occurs when a person threatens harm upon another individual, leading to a fear of imminent harm. Physical contact does not have to happen for assault charges to be filed; just the threat itself is enough. Depending on your situation, you may be charged with felony assault, aggravated assault, or simple assault.

Battery, on the other hand, requires physical contact to occur between the defendant and the plaintiff in order for charges to be filed. To prove charges of battery, the prosecutor needs to show that the defendant deliberately struck or touched the alleged victim. Battery charges may be elevated under certain conditions, such as if it was committed using a deadly weapon or against a public servant like a police officer or teacher.
