Bakersfield Assault Lawyer

Assault is a type of violent crime that can be verbal or non-verbal.  Threatening someone or berating him or her is considered to be a criminal act, just as much as physically beating someone is.  As a violent crime, an act of assault can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony crime, mostly depending on the individual details of a case and the prosecutor’s discretion.  For this reason, it is crucial that if you or a loved one is facing charges for assault in Bakersfield, contact an experienced Bakersfield criminal attorney without delay.

Misdemeanor assault cases are notorious for being bumped up to felonies. If you are convicted, you could face serious penalties ranging from probation and community service to years in state prison. All felony violent crimes are included in California’s Three Strikes law, which means that if you have prior convictions, even a relatively “minor” violent crime conviction for assault could send you to prison for life. With so much at stake, it is critical that you protect yourself with a skilled criminal attorney.
