Common Violent Crimes in Brevard County

Whether you didn't know what you were doing was illegal, were driven by desperation, or simply made a momentary lapse in judgment, Florida prosecutors will rarely pay attention to your side of the story.

  • Battery - punishable as a misdemeanor; up to 1 year in jail
  • Aggravated battery - punishable as a felony; up to 15 years in a state penitentiary
