Aggravated Battery is a second degree felony in the State of Florida. It is defined as unwanted contact with or intentional injury of another people either with a deadly weapon or causing great bodily harm. Additionally, any battery where the alleged victim is pregnant and the accused batterer knew or should have known about the pregnancy is classified as aggravated battery regardless or any injury or the use of a weapon.
As a second degree felony, aggravated battery is punishable by incarceration in prison for up to fifteen years or a combination of prison and probation for up to fifteen years. Additionally, a fine of up to $10,000.00 may be ordered. Because of the "points" assigned to aggravated battery in the Florida Punishment Code, every aggravated battery charge "scores" mandatory prison time of about 1.75 years. Unless the court grants a downward departure, everyone convicted of aggravated battery is sentenced to prison.
