If you or your loved one has been charged with “agg assault”, as it is called, contact Tallahassee criminal defense attorney Joe Bodiford. What follows is the Florida Aggravated Assault statute:
784.021. Aggravated Assault
Bodiford Law Notes:
An “assault” is an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such other person that such violence is imminent. A simple threat is not enough; the threat has to be combined with an action that places someone in real fear that something is really about to happen.

(b) With an intent to commit a felony.
