Assault Defense Lawyer in Port St. Lucie

St. Lucie County Criminal Attorney for Assault Charges

Have you been arrested on suspicion of assault? One of the most important steps you can take is to consult with an experienced attorney. You may be in danger of facing criminal charges for this violent crime, and your entire future may actually be at risk. A Port St. Lucie criminal defense lawyer can work actively to limit the investigation against you, negotiate with the prosecuting attorney to lessen or drop your charges, and challenge any evidence or witness testimony against you to seek a positive result in criminal court.

Simple assault is described in Florida Penal Code Section 784.011 as an intentional and unlawful threat of violence against another person, with the apparent or actual ability to carry this threat out. This threat would also create a well-founded feeling of fear in the victim. This form of assault is a second degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 60 days in jail. There are also situations where assault may be charged as a felony. Different circumstances may lead to more serious charges and enhanced penalties, including the use of a deadly weapon or assault on a law enforcement officer. In these matters the defendant may be at risk of facing incarceration in state prison.
