Ventura Assault Attorney

Arrested? Call Us Today - 805-324-6777

Assault is considered a violent crime and as such, comes with harsh penalties under California law. Many who are accused don't understand the how they were charged with assault and often "cross the line" without realizing they're leaving themselves vulnerable to a significant charge. Even if you didn't physically "assault" a person, you could still face charges, which is why you need incisive representation to fight these accusations.

Why people choose our firm:

  • Proven Trial Experience
  • A proven record of success

Assault Definitions & Penalties

The most surprising aspect of assault cases for those accused is how they can occur when no one is actually hurt. Not to be confused with battery (which involves harmful or unwanted contact), assault deals with the threat of danger and violence from the offender to the victim. Simple assault, which involves no weapons, is considered a misdemeanor.

Penalties for assault charges include:

  • Simple assault: Up to 6 months in jail and $1000 in fines.
  • Assault with a deadly weapon: Up to 4 months of prison and $10,000 in fines.
  • Assault with a firearm: Up to 4 months in prison and $10,000 in fines.

Other assault charges include assault with a deadly weapon and assault with a firearm. A key note here is that, while a deadly weapon charge requires a weapon to be wielded by the offender, a firearm charge does not. Even if the firearm is holstered, the offender is considered to have committed, and can be charged with, assault with a firearm. Other factors, like the involvement of police officers, teachers, public transit operators, and other city workers can make these charges more serious.
