Assault Charges in Florida

In Florida, assault is defined as a crime involving a threat that causes a victim to fear imminent harm – it does not necessarily involve any physical contact between the victim and the offender. If the offender does make physical contact with the victim, they could be charged with battery.

Florida law recognizes two types of assault: simple and aggravated. Simple assault is a second-degree misdemeanor that can result in up to 60 days in jail and up to $500 in fines. Aggravated assault is a third-degree felony that can result in up to five years in jail and up to $5,000 in fines.

The following factors may influence the severity of assault charges and potential penalties:

  • Whether a firearm or other deadly weapon was used
  • Whether the victim suffered significant bodily harm
  • Whether the victim was a peace officer, government employee, child, or doctor
  • The type of attack or act that was carried out upon the victim
  • Whether the act was committed as a result of criminal negligence
