If the alleged "victim" was actually the aggressor in your case, then self-defense may be your best defense. Florida law allows you to meet deadly force with deadly force to protect yourself or others. Under the Stand Your Ground law, if you are not the aggressor, you are authorized to defend yourself in any place where you are legally allowed to be without a duty to try to retreat.
Additionally, the castle doctrine creates a presumption that unlawful intruders in your home are there to do you harm and you may defend yourself from that harm.
Justifiable use of deadly force laws allow you to meet deadly force with deadly force if you reasonably believe that the force is necessary to protect yourself from great bodily harm.
Sometimes the facts of an aggravated battery case just don't add up. Perhaps there was unwanted contact or the injury is not serious enough to justify an aggravated battery charge. It's important to have a criminal defense attorney review all of the evidence in your case and challenge any facts that don't support aggravated battery charges. Just because the police charge you with aggravated battery doesn't mean the State has the evidence to prove it.
