Battery Crimes in Florida – Orlando Criminal Attorney
Battery crimes are considered crimes of violence and can have significant penalties, including minimum mandatory penalties. In these cases, it is not uncommon for the parties involved to know one another, and frequently the parties have conflicting stories about what occurred. If you have been arrested for battery, you should speak with an experienced Orlando criminal attorney at your earliest opportunity to learn about your rights and the defenses that may be available to you.
Battery consists of a person actually or intentionally touching or striking another person against the will of the other; or intentionally causing bodily harm to another person. In some cases, the alleged crime may be that of a simple push which left no mark or physical injury on the victim. A simple battery is usually a 1st degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in the county jail. However, if the individual has a prior conviction for battery, aggravated battery, or felony battery, the crime may be charged as a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in State prison.
