What You Face in a Criminal Assault Case
Sometimes known as “simple assault” in California, a criminal charge of assault (California Penal Code 240) is often confused with battery. Although these charges may be simultaneously involved in a situation, it is important to know that assault and battery are two separate criminal offenses. If you face a charge of assault in California, you are being accused of creating a substantial threat of violent or serious injury against another person.
If convicted of assault in California, you could face the following:
- Fines up to $1,000 (misdemeanor) or $10,000 (felony)
- Jail up to 6 months (misdemeanor) or 3 years (felony)
- Probation up to 3 years
- Permanent marks on your criminal record
