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 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.
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.
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.
