Assault Offenses

Hayward Assault Offenses Attorney

Defending Those Facing Assault Charges in Alameda County, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, and the Bay Area

Assault offenses are generally associated with the threat of or use of force against another person. However, distinctions exist between various types of “assault” that can involve actual physical harm inflicted on someone or acting in a way to threaten harm, even if it did not result in any actual contact with the alleged victim.

What Are The Penalties For Assault Offenses in California?

Various types of assault have been established by California law in which you may be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony. How you are charged, and the penalties involved will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of the case. Where force or aggression is directed at others, you are at risk for jail or prison time, heavy fines, probation, and other court-ordered programs or actions.

A conviction will also give you a permanent criminal record that can harm your ability to obtain employment, rental housing, educational opportunities, and make you ineligible for professional licenses in the career of your choice.

Assault Cases We Handle

Our legal team aggressively defends all types of assault-related charges, including:

  • Misdemeanor assault, such as simple assault. Penalties include a fine of up to $1,000 and/or six months of jail time. When assault becomes aggravated, committed with a deadly weapon, or against a police officer or other public servant, penalties are increased to a jail sentence of up to a year and fines of up to $2,000.
  • Battery. This is a separate crime in California. While assault can be charged even without making physical contact, with another, battery involves actual physical contact which may or may not cause injury. It includes battery against a spouse or cohabitant or domestic battery. It may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.
  • Other crimes that involve threats of force or the use of force against others can include child endangerment, corporal injury to a child, criminal threats, and elder abuse. How they are charged is based on the specifics of the case, including the extent of harm caused and any prior criminal history. Where it takes place in a domestic setting, consequences can be harsher and include protective orders that deny any contact between the alleged abuser and the alleged victim.
