Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer (LEO)

Depending upon the specific circumstances, battery on a law enforcement officer may be charged as a first degree felony (punishable by up to 25 years in prison) and may carry a mandatory minimum sentence. Additionally, it may be difficult to work with the State in these kinds of cases because prosecutors are very protective of police officers, especially if the officer was injured.

It is imperative to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to fight against these types of charges. I represented a client who had been charged with Attempted First Degree Murder of a Police Officer. He walked away with a withhold of adjudication and some probation. No jail time. See Case Results.

784.07 Assault or battery of law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical care providers, public transit employees or agents, or other specified officers; reclassification of offenses; minimum sentences.

If you or a friend or family member were arrested for Battery, regardless of whether the crime allegedly occurred inMelbourne, Palm Bay, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Titusville, Rockledge, Cape Canaveral, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, West Melbourne, Melbourne Village,  Melbourne Beach, Indialantic, Palm Shores, Grant-Valkaria, Mims, or anywhere else in Brevard County, contact me to immediately schedule your free consultation.

I had the misfortune of requiring the services of an attorney for representation with a traffic citation. Jordan Kramer came highly recommended and lived up to that recommendation. Mr. Kramer was knowledgable and understanding. His office staff was friendly and his communication system was most efficient. Mr. Kramer saved me a considerable sum of money through his effective representation. B.E.

I would highly recommend Jordan Kramer. He played the angles well for my case, hands down. Jordan is very down to earth counselor and a wise attorney at law. He always kept me up to date with any new information about how my case was going. I hope I never need his professional, aggressive skills again, but if I do Mr. Kramer will be in my corner. C.R.
