Felony Battery

If a criminal defendant intentionally (a) touched or struck the alleged victim against his or her will, or (b) caused bodily harm to the alleged victim, he can be charged with Simple Battery, under Florida Statutes Section 784.03.  A simple battery is a first degree misdemeanor.  However, if the criminal defendant has a prior conviction for battery, he or she can be charged with Felony Battery which is a third degree felony.

If you anticipate being charged with the crime of battery or you have already been arrested for it, contact a Jacksonville Florida Criminal Defense Attorney as soon as possible.  When it comes to felony battery, time is of the essence.  A Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer may be able to investigate your case early and discuss it with the prosecutor prior to the case being filed.  This may result in the case being dropped, filed as a misdemeanor instead of a felony, or a favorable disposition.

Client Reviews
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
