Legal Question in Criminal Law in Florida

If battery touch/strike is my first time ever being in any kind of trouble and the lady whom I "hit" has been constantly harassing me & my family AND I've had a restraing order what do you think I will probably have as my punishment. I can do probation & pay fines I really do not want to go back to jail. I've been going through hell trying to get the lady to leave my family alone & I ended education up staying the night in jail!

You need to meet with an attorney in person to discuss the possible options as applied to your case.
