Battery

California assault law defines Battery the actual use of force or violence on someone else.  A battery conviction is very serious. Under California law, even if you didn't “severely beat” the victim, all that matters is you touched him/her in an offensive way, but under California law, serious injuries to the victim can result in separate criminal charges of battery causing serious bodily injury.  If you are being charged with battery, it is critical to have legal representation from a superior California criminal defense attorney.

Burglary and Robbery

Burglary and robbery are used interchangeably, but are actually two completely different crimes. Robbery is defined as taking another person's property through the use of fear or force. Charges of Burglary involves entry with the intent to commit a felony act or petty theft. A burglary may become a robbery if the person involved uses force in an attempt to escape while being pursued.  There are many strong defenses to such charges. William S.

Gun and Weapons Possession

The legal penalties for gun-related charges are harsh. Sentencing can be up to a year in county jail for misdemeanors, anywhere from 16 months to 4 years for unlawful firearm possession cases and unlawful use of firearms can mean life in prison.

When used incorrectly or illegally, firearms are the most dangerous tool available to people. They are so intertwined with criminal enterprise that law enforcement has no choice but to focus on getting guns away from criminals. For this very reason, anyone who has been convicted of a felony is forever forbidden from owning a firearm of any kind. Mental health issues or the conviction of certain misdemeanors also prohibit a person from owning or acquiring a gun.  These laws will only get tighter as school shootings and gun violence take center stage in our media. It is simply too easy to hurt or kill someone with a gun. Law enforcement spends time and resources getting guns off the streets and then linking those guns to unsolved crimes committed in the past. Prosecutors come down hard on people charged with firearms crimes. Almost all jurisdictions have penalty enhancements for possessing or using a gun during the commission of any other crime.

Homicide

Murder

California recognizes two types of murder charges: first degree murder and second degree murder. First degree murder involves premeditation, deliberation or deliberate planning, and intent to kill.
