Criminal Defense in Lakeland, FL. & Tampa, FL.

In the State of Florida, assault and battery is one of the most common types of criminal charges. Although typically referred to as “Assault and Battery”, these are two separate criminal charges. Assault takes place when a threat or action puts an individual in imminent fear of touching in a non-consensual way. Assault does not need to involve physical contact. In some instances, a defense strategy for assault charges can include self-defense, defense of property, or defense of others.

Battery charges take place when an individual performs an act that is harmful against another without their permission. This contact may include offensive touching or aggression, sexual action, or any other type of unwanted touching. However, accidental contact is not considered battery. As your criminal defense attorney, we can provide you with a strong defense in the face of battery charges to ensure the best outcome in your criminal case.
