Domestic Assault Definition

Under Florida Statutes 784.011, an assault is defined as a person intentionally placing another person in fear of imminent bodily harm. In the context of a domestic violence case, a domestic assault differs from a regular assault because a domestic assault occurs between family members or people involved in romantic relationships.
