Assault with a Deadly Weapon
You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced assault defense attorney.
Have you been accused of attacking someone with some kind of weapon in your hand? Whether you allegedly used a weapon designed for violence like a knife or a sap, or a makeshift weapon like a screwdriver or a bottle, you could face charges for assault with a deadly weapon. If the deadly weapon involved was a gun, you will face charges under California’s assault with a firearm law.
It’s important to remember that the victim doesn’t actually have to be injured for charges to apply, because assault is merely the attempt to injure someone. Nonetheless, the penalties that apply to this offense can be severe, especially if a gun was involved on the victim did suffer a serious bodily injury. In certain situations, assault with a deadly weapon can actually qualify as a Third Strike Offense.
