Assault with a Deadly Weapon Walnut Creek CA
This crime can be committed in a number of different ways. It requires the showing of simple assault (an attempt to offensively touch or harm another person) combined with a showing of some type of weapon or force likely to produce great bodily injury. Unfortunately the definition of ‘great bodily injury’ is fairly vague and open to interpretation. It generally refers to a significant or substantial injury or one which is greater than minor or moderate harm.
This charge can come as either a felony or misdemeanor. If charged as a felony it carries with it the potential for a significant prison term – up to 12 years.
Given the significant amount of prison time that a conviction under this section can carry it is important to have strong legal counsel to fight for you.
