Fighting for Your Freedom in Miami

If you have been charged with assault, you should speak with a Miami criminal attorney as soon as you can.

In this situation, having a seasoned criminal defense lawyer on your side is crucial. When you call on Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, you can trust that you have a qualified and aggressive advocate behind your case.

Contact our firm at your earliest convenience to begin fighting for a strong defense.

About Assault in Florida

Assault is the crime of intentionally threatening another person, along with the ability to carry out the action at the time that the threat is made. In order for the courts to find someone guilty of assault, the subject must have the "present apparent ability" to carry out the threat, and the threat must create a true fear that the violence was going to occur. If a person had a deadly weapon in their possession, the penalties and charges may increase.

What penalties could I be facing?

In the state of Florida, law enforcement takes violent crimes seriously. For this reason, the penalties for even a simple assault charge may land you in jail. Depending on the nature of the crime and whether or not a weapon was present, the penalties could range from a misdemeanor to a felony offense.

According to state laws, the following penalties can be enforced:

  • Assault: Up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine
  • Aggravated Assault: Up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine

If you have been charged with either of these offenses, it is important to make sure that your rights are protected during the criminal process. To get started on building a viable defense in your favor, contact our firm immediately.
