How Is Assault Defined Under The Penal Code?
Assault, as defined in the Florida penal code, is an “intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such other person that such violence is imminent.”
Most assaults are classed as second degree misdemeanors. A conviction can lead to fines and up to 60 days of jail time. Along with the possibility of civil penalties, an assault charge carries the potential to upend your life and seriously damage your future.
