Understanding Violent Crime Charges in Florida

  • Misdemeanor assault - The intentional act or threat of violence towards another individual. The person accused of assault must appear have the capabilities to commit a similar crime in the future. Additionally, the act must cause fear of harm for the victim. This crime is classified as a second-degree misdemeanor.
  • Aggravated assault - Aggravated assault is similar to misdemeanor assault; however, an aggravated assault usually involves the use of a deadly weapon. This crime is classified as at least a third-degree felony.
  • Battery - Intentionally touching another person against his or her will. Depending on the circumstances, this crime can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
  • Robbery – The taking of property from another individual with the intent to keep the items. It also involves the use of force, threat, or assault that puts the other individual in fear of danger. This crime is considered a first or second-degree felony depending on the situation.
  • Murder - The unlawful killing of another individual, either through premeditation or by acting indifferently towards human life. This crime is classified as either a capital, first or second-degree felony.

When Does Battery Become a Felony in Florida?

In Florida, a battery can be a felony depending on the circumstances. For a battery to be considered a felony, you must have inflicted significant injury on another person or have prior battery convictions. An example would be if you shove another person, resulting in that person falling down, but sustaining no real, lasting injury, you would probably be charged with Misdemeanor Battery. If, however, in shoving the person you caused him or her to break a bone, then you might be charged with Felony Battery.
