What Is Assault?
To be charged with assault in California, there has to be reason to believe that you had intentionally tried to physically hurt someone or had issued a threatening statement that forced the other party to believe you would attack them. When you add battery, which is when there is actual physical contact, to the charge, the prosecutor will ask for a longer sentence and/or higher fines. Our Vista assault defense attorney can handle the prosecutor and work to get charges reduced.
Assault Charges With Heavier Sentences
There are times when a simple assault charge can carry heavier consequences than normal.
Some examples of victims of assault where the assault charge is weightier includes:
- School employees
- Highway workers
- Public transportation workers
- Probation officers
- US Military
California Assault Penalties
The penalties for assault in the state of California include fines up to $1,000 and six months in county jail. Fines and sentences increase with the severity of the crime and your prior criminal record. Our Vista assault defense attorney can work with the district attorney’s office to reduce your charges.
