Florida man facing assault, battery charges after altercation

Allegations of violent crimes can place a heavy burden on anyone. These charges can come with hefty penalties if a conviction occurs, and this type of mark on a criminal record could have major impacts throughout a person's life. If parties have been charged with assault or other similar allegations, they may find themselves relying heavily on their criminal defense presentations.

One man in Florida will undoubtedly want to look into his defense options after charges were recently brought against him. Reports stated that the man and his wife had apparently gotten into an altercation in their home. The argument purportedly arose after the wife confronted that man about his unusual behavior. The incident allegedly escalated to a point at which the man held a blowtorch close to the woman's face.

The event did not result in the woman suffering any injuries, but she reportedly stated that she feared for her life. As a result of the altercation, the 41-year-old man is currently facing criminal charges. Simple battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and simple assault were among the allegations.

Finding the best way to approach a case involving criminal charges for assault or other violent crimes may not be easy. The criminal justice system can be complex, and individuals lacking knowledge on options and proceedings may feel at a loss. Luckily, accused Florida residents could enlist the assistance of experienced attorneys to help them better understand the charges, their defense options and other aspects of their case that may arise as proceedings move forward.
