Protecting The Rights Of Those Charged With Assault And Battery

If you face charges for a violent crime, your future could be in jeopardy. A conviction for assault or battery carries severe penalties in Florida, including jail time. With so much at stake, the legal counsel you seek matters, and having an attorney who understands the court system can make a considerable difference.

The Colucci Law Group has the necessary courtroom experience to effectively advocate on your behalf. Our team of trial lawyers will explore every available option to minimize your penalties as we formulate a customized legal strategy. We have an extensive background of defending clients from serious charges, and we are prepared to support you.

Exploring Your Potential Defense Options

A second-degree simple assault charge can result in up to 60 days of imprisonment. Simple battery, which is also a misdemeanor, can result in up to one year of jail time. When charges escalate to a felony, the sentencing becomes stricter, and you could find yourself facing a lengthy prison sentence. Fortunately, there are several avenues for constructing a successful defense, including:

  • Self-defense: You can establish self-defense by showing that you were warding off a threat of physical harm.
  • Consent: When an individual gives permission for physical contact, it can sometimes negate a potential assault and/or battery case.
  • Defense of others or property: If you are defending your home or family against harm, you could have a viable defense against a criminal charge.

A seasoned criminal defense attorney can thoroughly assess your defense options. The Colucci Law Group has more than 45 years of combined legal experience, and our attorneys understand what is necessary to compose a successful defense. Our lawyers will take the time to fully evaluate your case, and we will explore every available option as we devise the best strategy.
