Lawyer, Ricardo Alvarez

In the State of Florida, there are various forms of Criminal Assault:

  • Assault (also known as simple assault): According to Florida Statute Chapter 784, the Criminal Act of Assault is defined as when any person intentionally and unlawfully threaten, by word or act, to do violence to the alleged victim; at the time, the defendant appeared to have the ability to carry out the threat; and in the victim’s mind, the defendant’s act or words created a well-founded fear that the violence was about to take place.
  • Aggravated Assault: When the assault occurs with a deadly weapon without intent to kill; or with an intent to commit a felony.
  • Assault on the Elderly: When the assault occurs against an alleged victim was 65 years old or older at the time of the assault.
  • Assault on Law Enforcement Officer: When the assault occurs against a law enforcement officer.

Assault crimes may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the specific nature of the alleged assault, who the assault was allegedly committed against, and sometimes, the accused prior criminal history.

In order for the prosecution to obtain a conviction for criminal assault crimes, intent must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Since intent is often very subjective, an experienced criminal defense attorney may get the charges dropped or dismissed.

If you have been charged with an assault crime, you need an attorney on your side who is knowledgeable of the law, experienced at trial, and able to negotiate for you from a position of strength.
