Can someone be charged with both assault and battery in Florida?
Answer: It’s possible, but you don’t usually see it all the time. The reason for that is if the victim is the same, then likely you’re not going to. If the victim is different, then it’s possible that you’ll see it that way. For instance, if someone was at a bar, they got into a bar fight, they strike one but went to go strike another and missed, then you would see the assault and battery charge together. But if it was something in the home where it was an assault that turned into a battery just between two people, probably not as likely.
