Under Florida Statute 784.011 and 784.021, an “assault” is an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such person that such violence is imminent.” The punishment is a misdemeanor of the second degree. However, if during an assault one uses a deadly weapon or intends to commit a felony, the charge increases to “aggravated assault,” for which punishment is a third degree felony.
Under Florida Statute 784.03 and 784.041, a simple battery occurs when a person either actually or intentionally strikes another person against that person’s will or intentionally causes bodily harm to another person. Simple battery is a first-degree misdemeanor unless that person has previously been convicted of a simple battery in the past, aggravated battery, or felony battery.
