Battery Penalties can Jeopardize Your Freedom

The most basic battery charge is a first-degree misdemeanor in Florida, but can be elevated to a felony charge if the victim is a law enforcement officer, emergency medical care provider, or other protected person.

Simple battery convictions typically come with:

  • Up to one year in jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • A year of probation
  • Financial restitution

Felony battery usually carries:

  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • Five years of probation
  • Financial restitution

You can be charged with battery even if you made no direct contact with the alleged victim’s person, but instead with something connected to their body, such as a purse, cell phone, clothing, or another object. No matter what you are accused of, you need the skilled representation a Miami battery defense lawyer can provide.
