Los Angeles Aggravated Assault Attorney
Assault and Aggravated Assault Legal Defense
Assault and aggravated assault are considered serious and violent crimes by the law enforcement agencies. They include:
- Assault causing bodily harm
- Assaulting a police officer
- Assault with a deadly weapon, such as a knife, gun or blunt instrument
- Withholding of sustenance for the survival of your spouse & children
In the state of California the fines and penalties for violent crimes range from fines up to $2,000, jail time up to a year or longer, possibly 6 months probation and various community services. You should also be aware that the above penalties can be greatly increased by the judge due to the circumstances of each case, such as a prior record. It is therefore essential to build a strong defense on your behalf, especially if you are not guilty of the charges that have been brought against you.
