Assault is the threat or attempt to cause injury to another individual. Simple assault is classified as a misdemeanor and it could result in six months in jail and a fine of $1,000. Battery differs from assault in that is actual violence against another, not just the threat of it.
Physical, mental, sexual, or financial abuse towards a family member or household member is called domestic violence. Our firm understands that many people are falsely accused of domestic violence and need strong defense in their cases.
As drug crimes have become a major issue in the U.S., law enforcement has cracked down on suspected cases. If you have been charged with possession, distribution, trafficking, or manufacturing, contact a San Bernardino drug crime attorney as soon as possible.
Driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or above is illegal in California. If you are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, you could be facing very severe penalties, depending on the type of DUI in question as well as the quantity on alcohol you consumed.
The range of crimes that are classified as felonies vary greatly, as do their penalties. You could be sent to prison for one year or sent to prison for life. Some felonies, like murder, result in the death penalty. If you have been convicted of murder, DUI, or kidnapping, contact a San Bernardino criminal defense attorney from our firm.
Hit & Run
It is against the law to leave the scene of an accident before exchanging information with the other people involved. It is a felony crime if there was an injury or loss of life as a result of the accident. This would result in up to four years in prison and fines of $10,000.
If your son or daughter has been accused of a crime, it could be detrimental to their future college and career opportunities. In order to avoid this happening, contact a juvenile crime attorney from our firm. We will do our utmost to get the charges dropped.
Although not as serious as a felony charge, a misdemeanor can still carry heavy penalties. For example, if you were accused of misdemeanor DUI, you could be facing jail time, loss of driving privileges, and steep fines. Theft crimes and assault without injury are other examples of misdemeanors.
As there is the possibility you will be sent back to jail for a probation violation, it is imperative that you have qualified legal representation to defend you. Probation is part of a sentence for a misdemeanor or felony crime.
Rape, child molestation, child pornography, prostitution, incest, and indecent exposure are sex crimes that could lead to serious penalties. In fact, if you are convicted of a sex crime, you will be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.
