Charged With Battery? Don’t Waste Time
Battery and aggravated battery are serious charges. The punishment depends on what the prosecutor chooses to pursue but can be as severe as up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $10,000. If you or a loved one is facing charges involving simple or aggravated battery, you must contact an attorney immediately or risk wasting valuable time without a good defender.
Simple Vs. Aggravated Battery: Both Are Serious
My name is Andy Coffey. As founding attorney of Andrew M. Coffey, P.A., I bring more than two decades of criminal defense experience, as well as a board certification as a trial specialist, to each client’s case.

When it comes to trial, you can trust that I will be as aggressive as possible to get you the positive outcome you deserve.
There are two types of battery charges that you may be facing if you have been in a physical altercation:
- Simple battery. This means intentional, unwanted physical contact.
- Aggravated battery. This is more serious, and the prosecution needs to prove that the defendant intended to cause serious harm.
These can be combined with each other, as well as assault charges. Assault charges mean the threat of harm, so they are often charged along with battery, which is the carrying out of a threat.
