Assault and Battery Charges & Penalties in Pinellas County

Assault and battery may count as “strikes” on your criminal record under Florida’s Three Strikes Law. Particular violent felony offenses count as strikes and receiving a second strike will mean that you will face double the normal penalties if you are convicted. A third strike will result in up to lifetime imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Depending on the case, you may face misdemeanor or felony charges for an assault and battery case. Generally speaking a case involving the use of a deadly weapon or serious bodily injury will result in felony charges and therefore harsher penalties. The same applies if you have previous convictions on your criminal record.
