Fighting Florida Assault and Battery Charges

Getting arrested for assault or battery, yes, they are two separate offenses, can leave you feeling hopeless and unsure of what your future holds. With the possibility of facing serious charges and possible jail time, it’s important to understand what you can do to protect your future following an arrest for assault or battery.

Like domestic violence disputes, it is extremely common for assault and battery charges to stem from heated arguments gone wrong. Additionally, due to mandatory arrest laws, you could be the one going downtown in the back of a police cruiser, even if you didn’t start the fight, simply because you weren’t the one who called the police.

Luckily, if you’ve been arrested on assault or battery charges, there are things you can do to protect your future moving forward.
