Naples Battery And Aggravated Battery Defense Attorney
Due to many years of legal experience, I understand the nuances of what can be involved with a battery charge. Sometimes, a client can be involved with an incident unknowingly.
Battery involves intentionally touching or striking another person against that person’s will. Typically, physical harm requiring medical attention occurs. If severe physical injuries are involved with an allegation of battery, the charge can become aggravated battery, which is a felony.
Depending on the existence of any criminal history and the severity of physical harm, a regular battery charge can be considered as a first-degree misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 364 days in a county jail or a third-degree felony with a maximum penalty of five years in state prison. Additional penalties can include the payment for medical care bills that amount to thousands of dollars.
With so much at stake for a battery charge, it is important seek representation soon after the alleged incident of battery occurred. I am skilled at handling all aspects of battery matters and will zealously fight to protect your rights during every step of the legal process.
