Criminal Charges in Glendale
Due to the many different charges that can be made against a person, whether just or unjust, it is vital that any defendant take advantage of their right to an attorney. In some cases, the word of a witness is all it takes to charge you with an offense. Assault is one such example, the charge requires no physical evidence to be brought forth as in the case of battery, because of this, an angry acquaintance or a person seeking revenge could testify that you committed the crime of assault. Other difficult charges could be trespassing, juvenile crimes and kidnapping. These can all come at a high cost that we will look to avoid. Under Penal Code 240 PC, assault convictions can lead to six months in jail, fines of $1,000, an educational program and community service. Aggravated battery can result in up to four year in a California prison, probation and may lead to a strike on your record.
