Penal Code § 240

Assault is, 1) an unlawful attempt, 2) coupled with a present ability, 3) to commit a violent injury on the person of another. Notice that an assault does not require a physical contact with another person, only an attempt.

An easy way to think about this is to picture someone throwing a punch, but never ultimately landing. No intent is required.

There are many forms of assault, such as assault with a deadly weapon ("ADW") and assault with great bodily injury ("GBI"). ADW and GBI can be considered a strike under the three strikes law. This is even more reason why you need an Assault Attorney to provide you with competent representation and defense.

If you are facing assault criminal charges, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can adequately protect your rights and raise a strong defense on your behalf!
