Understanding Assault & Battery Charges

In Florida, assault and battery are treated as separate offenses. While assault deals primarily with threats of imminent force, battery refers to touching another without consent. The latter includes offenses that lead to injury or that are sexual in nature.

There are several types of assault and battery crimes. State laws set forth a sentence requirement for each specific kind of offense.

The classifications and penalties for assault and battery crimes include:

  • Aggravated battery: Charged as a second-degree felony and punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Felony battery: Charged as a third-degree felony and punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000
  • Simple battery: Charged as a first-degree misdemeanor and punishable by up to one year in prison and a maximum fine of $1,000
