My son is charger with 2 counts 784.03 (1) (a) (1) he is innocent but if found guilty what could be the penalty ?

Asked about 2 years ago - Orlando, FL

He was infact the victim of the accusers and suffered injuries. They have none. This is just " a he says she says scenario ' with several people who are all friends with each other false witnessing against him. the only evidence is actually against the other parties
It's 2 counts because apparently there are 2 people claiming being hit
the clerk file says its filed as a " first degree misdemeanor "
Both are 784.03 (1) (a) (1)
he is innocent but if found guilty what could be the penalty considering he has no criminal record?

    Answered . The prior answer is correct. The maximum fine is $1,000.00 per an offense and 1 year of probation per an offense. However, battery is also an enhanceable offense. If your son resolves these cases, he may be subjecting himself to a future felony battery charge if ever involved in this type of alleged criminal behavior. From what you are stating, it would seem like a good idea to have your son represented by an attorney. These criminal charges could affect his future significantly.
