Battery Attorneys in Miami

Backed by More Than 45 Years’ Experience

When a defendant physically makes contact with a victim, the defendant may then be charged with battery under Florida State laws. However, the prosecution will need to prove several things in order to obtain a conviction. The defendant must have intentionally touched or struck the victim, the contact must have been done without the victim’s consent, and contact must have been done against the victim’s will. If you have been charged with battery, you should retain an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

Depending on your specific charges, if you are convicted, you could face:

  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Years in jail or prison
  • Probation

Also, a conviction will give you a criminal record, thereby hurting your ability to find a job, get housing, and even apply for certain professional licenses. You could even lose the respect of your friends and family. At Jeffrey S.

Battery Charges & Their Corresponding Penalties

There are various types of battery, including simple battery, felony battery, and aggravated battery. To convict an individual of simple battery, the prosecution only needs to prove the defendant intentionally struck or touched the victim against the victim’s will and without the victim’s consent. A defendant may be charged with felony battery if the defendant has been previously convicted of battery. A defendant may be charged with aggravated battery if the prosecution can prove the defendant used a deadly weapon or if the defendant intended to cause serious bodily injury.

Battery charges and similar charges, as well as their penalties, are as follows:

  • Aggravated battery. This is a second-degree felony, and a defendant may face a fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment for up to 15 years.
  • Felony battery. This is a third-degree felony, and a defendant may face a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment for up to 5 years.
  • Simple battery. This is a first-degree misdemeanor, and a defendant may face a fine of up to $1,000 and imprisonment for up to 1 year.
  • Aggravated assault. This is a third-degree felony, and a defendant may face a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment for up to 5 years.
  • Simple assault. This is a second-degree misdemeanor, and a defendant may face a fine of up to $500 and imprisonment for up to 60 days.
  • Domestic violence. Charges of domestic violence depend on the specific facts and circumstances of each case. For example, it could be charged as simple assault, which is a second-degree misdemeanor. It could also be charged as a third-degree felony.
