Assault is defined as: the threat or attempt of force or battery on another that causes the victim to have a reasonable apprehension of imminent harm. In criminal law, assault is defined as an attempt to commit battery, requiring the specific intent to cause physical injury. If you are currently being investigated for or have been charged with the crime of assault it would be in your best interest to hire a qualified attorney immediately. An assault charge is extremely serious and can result in the immediate loss of your freedom.
Assault is considered a violent crime in California. Being accused of assault can result in either a misdemeanor or a felony charge. Either charge will result in jail time, fines, and restitution to the victim, counseling, parole and a mark on your criminal record for life.
