The State of Florida defines aggravated assault as an intentional threat of violence by word or action causing fear of harm in another, with the apparently ability to cause such harm, either using a deadly weapon or with the intent to commit a felony crime. Aggravated assault charges are quite serious and may lead to severe penalties such as prison time, probation, or fines. Additionally, as a felony, an aggravated assault conviction will result in the loss of civil rights including the right to carry firearms and the right to vote.

Aggravated Assault with a Firearm is one of the most serious aggravated assault charges. It carries at least a three year minimum prison sentence if convicted under Florida’s 10-20-Life law. Depending on the type of firearm and how it’s used, the minimum mandatory sentence may be up to twenty-five years in prison. The minimum mandatory sentence for aggravated assault with a firearm must be served day-for-day, which means no time off for good behavior and no eligibility for early release programs. It’s important to consult with an aggravated assault defense attorney as soon as possible to develop your defense strategy.
