Fullerton Assault Defense Lawyer

Strong Legal Protection When It Matters Most

Assault crimes involve the attempt of illegal violence against a person but do not need not necessarily include physical contact. The court will assess the aspects surrounding your case when seeking to determine a conviction, but you should know that things are not guaranteed to be balanced from the beginning. Prosecutors often work alongside investigators to tilt evidence in their favor, making it easier for them to get a conviction.

If convicted of assault, you could be punished through:

  • Years in prison
  • Fines paid to the state
  • Restitution paid to the victim
  • Weapon rights removal

Assault charges can escalate for a variety of reasons. For example, when a deadly weapon is involved in an assault, the charges will automatically be increased to aggravated assault. A conviction for aggravated assault can include a mandatory four-year prison sentence. To keep yourself from being slammed with heavy penalties, you have to put your case in front of a reputable defense lawyer.

Assault Charges & Your Family Life

Violent charges are one of the most devastating things that a person can face. With such charges, you face the risk of possible jail time and the expense of high fines, not to mention the bad name you gain just from the accusations. There is also the damaging effect that assault charges can have on your family life as well. You could lose child custody rights due to an assault or domestic violence conviction. If you want to stay with your child, then you must do all you can to defend against your charges.

Are Assault & Battery The Same Thing?

Many people believe that assault and battery are one and the same, when in fact they are two distinct crimes under California law. Assault happens when a person performs an act that is likely to result in the application of force to another person, or when they threaten to use force against a victim. There doesn't have to be an actual injury for someone to be charged with assault. On the other hand, the use of force or violence must be present to file a battery charge. Some attorneys describe assault as "attempted battery" and battery as "completed assault".
