Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer - Orlando Defense Attorneys

Have you been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, firefighter or emergency medical provider? While leniency may be available in general battery cases, it most often is not when police officers and other law enforcement agents are involved. Battery on a law enforcement officer is a third-degree felony with penalties of:

  • Up to five years in prison
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • Up to five years of probation

Despite the severity of the charge of battery on a law enforcement officer, numerous legal defenses are often available. For example:

  • Did you even know the individual in question was a law enforcement officer?
  • Was the official acting in his or her professional capacity, or was he or she off duty?
  • Was he or she in uniform?
  • Did you actually touch the officer?

At the Orlando, Florida, criminal defense law firm of Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, we can investigate your claim, analyze the facts and provide the strongest-possible defense. For instance, if you did not actually touch the officer, we can argue that your charges be reduced to the charge of attempted battery of a law enforcement officer. If the officer was off duty or was not in uniform, or you did not know the officer was a law enforcement official, we can argue for amended charges.

Injuries are not necessary for charges of battery on a law enforcement officer to be valid; touching alone can result in significant fines and incarceration. For a no-charge consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney, contact our Orlando or New Smyrna Beach office.
