Aggravated Assault Under Florida Law

The difference between an assault and an aggravated is the use of a deadly weapon. Under Florida Statutes Section 784.021, a person is guilty of aggravated assault if the prosecution can show an individual:

  • Put another person in fear
  • Of immediate bodily harm
  • By using a deadly weapon

The penalty for an aggravated assault is up to 5 years in prison. With an experienced aggravated assault defense lawyer, you can get the charges either reduced or dismissed. It is the prosecution’s burden to prove the elements of aggravated assault. If your defense attorney can show that the person was not in fear of immediate harm then the state has not proved the case.

You must talk to a criminal defense attorney about the specific facts of your case in order to get a defense to aggravated assault charges.
