The answer is yes. Under California Penal Code 245(a)(1) PC, assault with a deadly weapon does not have to involve a firearm.

These three terms can become confusing if you are otherwise untrained in criminal law. In what follows, our Fresno criminal defense attorney explains the difference between these terms so you can be informed in the unfortunate event you are arrested for a crime.

A criminal attorney ensures that an individual’s rights are protected when they have been accused of a crime. They allow the individual to explain their side of the story and defend themselves against any charges. Also, they help ensure a fair trial.

If you are potentially facing criminal charges, even very minor ones, you could benefit greatly from hiring a criminal defense attorney. Even with just an initial consultation, we can help you understand the charges that you face, the defense strategies, the type of plea deals the prosecution might offer and what you can do if you get convicted.

We’re not saying mistakes don’t happen, but the reason most DUI cases result in conviction is because the accused was guilty.

When you’ve been accused of a crime, it is critical to find the right criminal defense lawyer to represent you, because a skilled and experienced lawyer can make a huge difference in the outcome of the case. That is why it is so important to select an attorney who has the right professional qualities.
