Assault in California criminal law is considered a violent crime. Attorney Michael Kraut has extensive experience handling assault cases in the Los Angeles area. He has handled these cases in San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange County.
Examples of assault offenses may include a variety of crimes, including:
California has some of the toughest laws and punishment for a conviction of a violent crime. A conviction of a violent crime can result from a charge by the prosecutor of either a misdemeanor or a felony. A conviction can result in jail or prison time, fines, full restitution to the victim, probation or parole, counseling, and a permanent entry on your criminal record. Other consequences include potentially losing your rights to own a firearm, loss of your job or employment opportunities and/or loss of your driver's license. Many assaults are considered "strikes" under California's "Three Strikes" Law. These charges are extremely serious and can be used to enhance future punishment in the future.
