Assault and battery are different charges in Florida. 90 days if you were arrested and generally two years for battery and one year for simple assault if you were not arrested. The time frames can be greater if you are out of state. Injuries are not required for either charge. www.BryceFetter.com
The Statute of limitations for a misdemeanor Assault (second degree misd.) is 1 year and for misdemeanor battery (first degree misd.) is 2 years. This can be found in Florida Statute 775.15. The state attorney's office sometimes does things that baffles us!!!!!!
Depends on if there was an arrest or not. Also for a battery there not need be any injury. Just an unwanted touching.
