Aggressive Chula Vista Assault Charge Attorneys

Under California law, a charge of assault means that a person is accused of attempting or intending to cause injury to another person, whether or not force or violence actually occurs. Battery refers to physical contact, force or violence against another person that has actually occurred. Assault and battery charges can vary greatly in severity, with some prosecuted as felonies and others as misdemeanors. A person can be charged with one of these offenses for hitting someone else, using a weapon against someone else, or for throwing an object at or spitting upon another person.
