Broward County Assault Charges Lawyer
What is Assault and Aggravated Assault?
Assault is considered the threat of violence or physical assault upon another,
without actually carrying out the threat. Most often charged along with
Battery, which is the actual physical harm caused to another, Assault
& Battery is a common offense. However, when charged only with Assault
or Aggravated Assault, this does not mean there are not steep penalties
for this charge. Although no actual physical harm may have been caused,
the attempt or threat is itself a crime punishable by harsh penalties.
If you have a prior criminal record, used a deadly weapon during the assault
or threaten a police officer, battery may be classified as anywhere between
a first degree misdemeanor all the way to a first degree felony. Penalties
may range from up to 12 months in jail all the way to 30 years in state prison.
