Assault with a Deadly Weapon Lawyer Los Altos CA
Assault with a deadly weapon is as serious of a crime as it sounds. Most people think of guns when they hear assault with a deadly weapon, but the reality is that almost anything hard or sharp can become a deadly weapon such as a knife or any other object capable of puncturing or fatally injuring a person, a beer bottle, a car, or anything hard or sharp.
A common misconception is that you have to actually use a deadly weapon on someone to be charged. The crime of assault with a deadly weapon does not require physical contact with another person. Just hold the weapon or object in a threatening manner or pointing it at a person could still cause charges to be brought against you. The California Criminal Justice System takes these types of cases very seriously and it prosecutes violent crimes to the full extent of the law with the intent of incarcerating the offender for as long as possible. The team at The Peninsula Law Group devotes all of its resources to your defense.
