Florida Statutes states that the crime of Battery has two basic elements:
- That the Defendant intentionally struck or touched the alleged victim.
- That the intentional strike or touching was against the will of the alleged victim.
All you the prosecutors in Okaloosa County have to do is prove these two elements, and you’re likely to be found guilty.
If your criminal defense attorney can offer a solid defense to either of these elements, you’re chance of walking away “not guilty of battery” increase significantly.
