Assault and Battery

If you have been charged with assault and battery in Florida, you are not alone. These are two of the most common violent crime charges in the United States. Of course, that doesn’t mean you’ll get off easy, particularly if you do not take advantage of a qualified Tampa criminal attorney. Assault and battery charges can vary from minor misdemeanors to first-degree felonies. The deciding factors include how much damage was done to the other party, if both parties aggressively engaged in the confrontation, if weapons were involved and more. Ultimately though, if you are arrested and charged with assault and battery you will need a skilled Tampa assault and battery criminal lawyer from our law firm.

A common misconception leads people to associate the word “assault” with a violent attack. In actuality, assault is merely the threat of violence, whereas “battery” refers to the physical harm done to another person.
