San Bernardino Violent Crime Defense Attorneys

Assault and Battery Charges in San Bernardino County, Apple Valley, Victorville, and Redlands

Assault and battery are distinct criminal offenses that are usually charged simultaneously. Depending on the incident, those who are arrested for these crimes can face jail or prison time in addition to costly fines, probation, and a permanent criminal record that can limit one’s ability to be employed. To protect your future and your freedom, it is important to retain the services of a skilled attorney before you speak to anyone about your charges, as anything you say to an arresting officer or the prosecution can later be used against you.

How Are Assault and Battery Changes Different in CA? 

Knowingly or willfully inflicting fear, or injuring or harming another human being, can result in serious criminal charges. While battery involves actual force or violence upon another person, assault does not need to be physically carried out to be considered an illegal act of violence. Instead, the prosecutor must prove that the defendant intended to harm another, which can come from threats or menacing actions that cause the alleged victim to believe they are in danger of being physically harmed. 

These crimes can result in misdemeanors or even felony charges and should not be taken lightly. Assault cases that involve a deadly weapon, a police officer, or an elderly or handicapped person may result in more serious charges. 

It is also important to note that violent criminal charges are often nuanced, involving “he said/she said” arguments, such as in the case of domestic violence accusations. Good people can get caught up in bad situations, and we understand that this can be scary and stressful for you and your family. The goal of our violent crime defense attorneys in San Bernardino is to thoroughly analyze the evidence against you in order to ensure your side of the story is told. Our goal is to reduce or dismiss your charges, whenever possible, helping you maintain your freedom and protect your future.
