Battery – According to § 784.03, Florida Statutes, someone commits the crime of battery when they do one of two things:


  1. intentionally touch or strike a victim against the victim’s will, or (2) intentionally cause bodily harm to the victim.

As strange as it seems, you can be guilty of a first degree misdemeanor battery without actually hurting anyone – the statute makes it illegal to simply touch someone against their will. If you are convicted you could be facing twelve (12) months in the county jail.
