While many people use the terms interchangeably, assault and battery actually
refer to two separate and distinct criminal offenses. Assault is the act
of threatening another person with violence, or otherwise making him or
her feel apprehension. Battery refers to the act of intentionally harming
another person. No matter what charges you are facing, it is important
that you work with a skilled assault & battery defense attorney. At
Rothman & Associates, P.A., we have
over four decades of experience defending Florida residents against criminal charges. You can be fully
confident in our ability to successfully resolve your matter.
Assault and Battery Consequences
The consequences of conviction for assault or battery are serious and may
include jail or prison time, a fine, probation, loss of employment, or
loss of a professional license. These consequences vary depending on the
circumstances of the incident and the seriousness of the charges.
For example, simple battery refers only to unwanted physical contact between
two people. Aggravated battery, however, occurs when a person uses a deadly
weapon or attempts to cause serious physical injury.
