Miami Assault Crime Defense Lawyer

Florida Statute 784.011 - Assault Charges in Florida

Assault Crime Defense

Under statute 784.011, assault is defined as threatening violence unlawfully and intentionally through word or action, and through such action, causing the victim to reasonably fear that the violence is imminent.

Have you been named in a criminal investigation involving assault in Miami? You will need immediate and aggressive legal representation by a knowledgeable assault crime attorney if you are to have the opportunity to avoid a conviction for these serious charges.

Attorney Michael Mirer can work to expedite your release from jail and can also begin immediately in defending your Constitutional rights to mitigate any potential penalties you may face or help you avoid a conviction altogether.

Distinguishing Between Assault & Battery

In such situations, the defendant is commonly charged with assault and battery, but many people fail to realize that these are two distinct offenses with separate penalties. Assault is distinguished from battery in that it does not involve the actual carrying out of the threat or attempt. Battery involves striking or touching another person, intentionally and against the victim's will.

Penalties for Assault in Florida

It is important that you understand the charges made against you, as well as the possible penalties of conviction. Assault is a second-degree misdemeanor offense, and sentencing could include up to 60 days in county jail, 6 months of probation, and a $500 dollar fine.

Assault is a serious violent crime and one that the state prosecutes harshly. The severity of assault charges will vary depending on the defendant's criminal record, whether a weapon was used (aggravated assault), whether the victim was a law enforcement officer and other factors as well.
