Violent Crime Attorney
In Broward, Palm Beach & Miami-Dade Counties
Violent crime is a broad category that can refer to anything from a simple assault to a first degree murder. Although assault and battery are often used together in one term, assault refers to the threat of bodily harm while battery occurs when physical contact is made. While a simple assault is only a misdemeanor, aggravated assault is a third degree felony. If a deadly weapon is used, the charge is enhanced. If this deadly weapon is a firearm they are enhanced further and come with minimum mandatory prison sentences. If the alleged victim is a member of a protected class, such as the elderly, a pregnant person, or law enforcement the penalty is also enhanced.
