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.
