    Understanding Your Aggravated Assault Charge

    In the state of California, assault involves the unlawful attempt to act in violence against another individual. The assault is considered “aggravated” when the accused allegedly committed the offense with the use of a deadly weapon. Even an unsuccessful attempt to cause bodily injury with a deadly weapon can result in life-altering charges of aggravated assault.

    Criminal penalties for aggravated assault are very serious but will depend on various factors, including:

    • Prior criminal record
    • Whether the crime was committed against a peace officer
    • Whether the crime was committed against a firefighter

    You can expect very serious penalties if convicted of aggravated assault. Some of the penalties you can face include, but are not limited to:

    • Probation
    • Parole
    • Prison term
    • Hefty fines
    • Anger management classes
    • Loss of right to own a weapon
