Jacksonville Battery Attorneys

Experienced Battery Lawyers Jacksonville FL

The crime of battery has many different variations including, simple battery, domestic battery, felony battery, aggravated battery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Each of these crimes is separated by severity of injury and potential punishment, if convicted.

Simple battery and domestic battery are both misdemeanors punishable by up to one year in the county jail and/or a fine. Simple battery involves no weapon or significant injury, while domestic battery is an offense which must occur between two or more members of the same household. Individuals convicted of domestic battery are forced to complete a mandatory 26-week batterer intervention class. This class means the offenders must be placed on probation following any incarceration period.

Even though both of these crimes are only misdemeanor, they have serious consequences, often times an alleged victim is lying or overexaggerating the circumstances to punish a person for some disagreement amongst them. Don't let an inexperienced attorney handle your case, call a professional who promises to investigate and get the facts.

Felony battery and aggravated battery are both felonies, but of different degrees. Felony battery is a third degree felony, punishable by up to five years in the Florida State Prison. Aggravated battery is a second degree felony punishable by up to fifteen years in the state prison. The difference between the two crimes often is dictated by a defendant's intent. Aggravated battery requires a heightened intent, and often is the result of intent to permanently injury or harm a victim.

Aggravated battery with a deadly weapon does not require use of a typical weapon like a gun, knife or blunt object; it can also stem from the use of an automobile, rock or stick.

An experienced criminal lawyer is able to argue for a reduced crime, as the prosecutor and police will always try to achieve the highest conviction. Having your reputation stained with assault and battery charges or other violent crime conviction can have lasting implications. Call Casey Bryant and let him fight for you and protect your record from any violent convictions.
