If You've Been Charged with Assault or Battery in California, the Next Move You Make is Crucial.
In California, Penal Code 240 defines an assault as an attempt to use force or violence on someone else. Battery, on the other hand, is the actual use of force or violence on someone else. Simple battery consists of any willful and unlawful use of force or violence on someone else.
In Los Angeles and surrounding counties, assault or battery can be treated as either a misdemeanor that may result in probation or anger management classes, or as a serious felony that may result in severe punishment including substantial time in prison.
To avoid serious, life-tarnishing consequences resulting from a conviction, it is CRUCIAL to have an experienced and knowledge criminal defense attorney who will build you a strong defense and defend your rights.
