Assault & Battery Defense Lawyer in Ocala

An Overview of Assault & Battery Cases

Assault and battery are actually two separate offenses, but they are often grouped together in cases in which both were committed at the same time. Assault involves attempted violence against another individual, or the threat of violence against them, while battery is the actual willful act of hitting, striking, or otherwise coming into physical contact with someone against their will. Assault & battery cases can carry severe penalties in the state of Florida in the event of a conviction, including:

  • Jail time (from 60 days to 15 years, depending on the specifics of the case)
  • Fines from $500 to $10,000
  • Parole
  • Mandatory anger management classes
  • Losing the right to bear arms
  • Probation
  • Permanent revocation of drivers' license

Convictions involving assault & battery count as "strikes" under the state's Three Strikes Law, meaning that an individual's sentencing will become increasingly severe as they are convicted on multiple occasions, or in the event that they are on parole or probation when the offense is committed. If you have been charged with assault & battery it is highly recommended you contact an Ocala criminal defense lawyer who can provide you with a strong and focused defense in your case.
