Information on Assault Charges

Angry man - Assault Defense in Bakersfield

Assault is the threat of bodily harm or injury against someone else. You do not have to actually physically hurt another individual to be charged with assault. Assault is often charged in association with battery, generally known as "assault and battery," which is the threat and then execution of bodily harm or injury against an individual.

Assault is a serious crime that will go on your record and result in you facing:

  • Jail time
  • Monetary fines
  • Probation if you are convicted

Contact the Bakersfield criminal defense attorney at our firm today if you are facing
assault charges.

Felony assault charges include assault with a deadly weapon. The use of a handgun or other firearm or weapon in the commission of a crime, or in an attempt to commit a crime can lead to felony charges with heavy penalties, including time in state prison up to 4 years and a fine of $10,000 under the California Penal Code, Section 244. When the accusation involves a weapon other than a firearm, the penalties are equally severe. When the offense was committed on school grounds or the alleged victim was a law enforcement office, the penalties are increased. Your prior criminal record and the circumstance of the crime will all be considered during sentencing. This is why it is so essential to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
