Assault Charges in Florida

Assault is defined as a crime of violence. When an action causes immediate and harmful contact toward another, or a word or action threatens fear of imminent harm toward another through the show of force, assault charges can be filed. For simple assault instances, not involving a weapon or serious injury, the charge levied against you is likely to be a second-degree misdemeanor and punishments may include a small amount of jail time and fines.

Assault charges can be elevated to felonies, which bring much harsher penalties when a deadly weapon or firearm is used or brandished during an assault.
