Assault Charges in Fort Myers

Assault, which is the threat of violent action by verbal or nonverbal means, is a second degree misdemeanor, while aggravated assault is committed with a deadly weapon but without intent to kill, or if it was committed with the intent to commit a felony.

The penalties for these charges could include:

  • Second-degree misdemeanor assault: Up to 650 days' jail and fines
  • Third-degree felony assault: Up to 5 years' prison and a $5,000 fine

The nature of assault makes it both difficult to prove and difficult to defend; given that the proof of a threat relies primarily on witness testimony, it is imperative that you retain an experienced and knowledgeable Fort Myers criminal defense attorney if you have been charged with assault. In order to be convicted of assault, it must be proven that a threat was made and that it was reasonably viable.

Battery Charges in Fort Myers

Physical violence against another person is a first degree misdemeanor and may result in a year imprisonment and/or up to $1,000 in fines if convicted.

Battery becomes a felony crime:

  • If the defendant has a prior battery-related conviction
  • If permanent disability or disfigurement is caused
  • If strangulation is attempted or committed against a family member or significant other
  • If the offense was committed with the use of a deadly weapon
  • If the defendant was aware that the alleged victim was pregnant at the time of the offense

Felony battery charges can be third or second degree felonies, meaning that a conviction could result in $5,000-$10,000 in fines and up to 5 or 15 years in prison.
