Explanation of Assault & Battery Crimes

In the state of Florida, assault and battery are actually two separate criminal acts. Assault is considered to be the intentional and knowing threat of committing violence against another person. On the other hand, battery is the actual causing of intentional bodily harm against another person. In some cases, an individual can be charged with both types of crimes—hence why people often view the crime as one.
