Assault Crime Cases

At the very heart of a criminal assault case is "intent". Florida Law defines assault as: an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and performing an act which creates a well-founded fear in another person that such violence is imminent.

Lets face it... arguments happen all the time. When individuals are in a heated discussion things are often said that never come to fruition. While a disagreement is occurring, if no action regarding boastful statements that may be perceived as a threat to do harm does not come to fruition, did the "intent" to follow through with an alleged threat ever really exist? It is all subjective in nature.

Elements of a criminal assault crime the prosecution must prove in order to obtain a conviction include, but may not be limited to:

  • That the accused was actually present at the altercation in question;

  • That the accused did in fact intentionally threaten the physical safety of the alleged victim verbally or by a physically threatening action;

  • That the accused had the apparent ability to follow through with the alleged intentional verbal or physical action that indicated an imminent threat of physical harm;

  • That the alleged victim had a well-founded fear of the accused to imminently follow through with the alleged act in question;

  • That the accused was not provoked by the alleged assault victim into the alleged actions in question;

  • That the accused was not acting in the defense of his or her person physical safety or the person physical safety of another at the time of the actions in question.

At Lapina Law, while representing your legal rights we will aggressively fight for your freedoms utilizing every legal resource available under the law in an effort to help you achieve the best possible resolution in the defense of assault charges or other criminal defense charges you may be facing.

More Criminal Assault Information

Criminal Assault claims are almost always very subjective in nature and perception. Just like our parents used to tell us when we were young... There are always two sides of the story. Our duty is to make sure your voice is heard and your story is accurately presented to the court in the defense of the assault charges you are facing.

If Lapina Law is hired to represent you in a criminal assault case or other criminal defense legal issue, we will review and analyze all the evidence against you, all witness statements; including investigating any prior actions of the accuser that may have lead to and contributed this specific incident in question. Our priorities, in order include to fight to have the charges against you dropped, seek to have the charges reduced, negotiate to have you receive probation instead of incarceration, or negotiate for a diversion program (when available) that will allow the charges to be expunged after the successful completion of the diversion program.
