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. Thomas Daly Law can provide a vigorous and strategic defense to all assault charges. Thomas Daly has been successful in producing great results in these types of cases – he knows how to defend them and knows how to reduce them. Call today for a free consultation. (925) 338-7517
