Assault and Battery in Florida

In Florida, assault and battery crimes include any intentional physical violence or threat of physical violence towards another person. Penalties for such charges can range from one day in prison to five years in prison, depending on the nature and severity of the alleged charges. Many people are confused about the law-related difference between assault and battery but the difference is fairly straightforward. Assault charges relate to physical harm threat, whereas battery charges involve physical harm inflicted. Penalties vary by the severity of the case, with both ranging from misdemeanors to felonies of the third degree.
