ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON
Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious crime, and you could face potentially serious charges. Early investigation into the charge is extremely vital to the defense case. Factors which can affect the severity of the charge include: the type of injury inflicted, type of weapon used, whether or not there is a possibility of mistaken identity, and the justification for the crime.

Depending on the severity of the charge, it will be seen as a Class B, or D felony. Assault is seen as an attempt to commit a violent injury on an individual while having possession of the means to do so (the weapon). If you have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, do not wait to speak to an attorney that is educated in California state laws.
The amount of injury inflicted can play a large part in the penalties assigned for assault with a weapon. This point should be analyzed by a lawyer as often the court will pursue the highest penalty regardless of the extent of the injury. The object in question may not be categorized as a weapon according to law, however, the incident may still be charged as assault.
