Hire a Fairfield Criminal Attorney Who Never Gives Up

In California, assault is defined as an attempt to physically injure another person, or making a menacing or threatening act or statement that causes the other person to believe that they are about to be attacked. In other words, assault does not necessarily have to involve any physical contact or physical injuries. On the other hand, battery involves intentional and unlawful force being used against another person - actual physical contact occurs. If you are being charged with assault and/or battery, speak with our attorney at The Maher Law Group, APC.

Your first consultation is provided FREE of charge. Call (888) 744-3057 today.

What Are the Penalties for Assault & Battery in CA?

Violent crimes, particularly assault and battery, are some of the worst crimes to be charged with. While simple assault and battery are typically charged as a misdemeanor, more severe assault and battery crimes, particularly those involving a deadly weapon, can be charged as a felony offense.

If convicted of assault and/or battery, you could be facing:

  • Incarceration
  • Costly fines
  • Probationary restrictions
  • Restitution for the victim
  • Criminal record

In addition to this, having prior convictions on your criminal record may make these potential penalties even more severe. Because of what is at stake, having an experienced, professional Fairfield criminal defense lawyer at your side throughout the legal process can help you avoid the worst possible punishments and increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.
