Los Angeles Assault Attorney

Assault is defined as any conduct that would cause another person to reasonably believe that he or she is in danger of either immediate harm or unwanted contact. In the federal context 18 U.S.C. Section 111 states that an assault may be charged against anyone who “(1) forcibly assaults, resists, opposes, impedes, intimidates, or interferes with any [officer or employee of the United States] while engaged in or on account of the performance of official duties; or (2) forcibly assaults or intimidates any person who formerly served as [an officer or employee of the United States] on account of the performance of official duties during such person’s term of service.” There are many valid defenses to an assault charge and it is imperative that you contact a criminal attorney immediately so that we may begin conducting an investigation into your case. Early intervention is the best way to ensure a successful defense by allowing the investigation of evidence and witnesses that may be favorable to your case.

Furthermore, any individual who used a deadly weapon in the commission of the assault may face enhanced criminal charges and/or sentencing. It is also important to note that 18 U.S.C. Section 117 brings domestic assault by a habitual offender within the confines of federal jurisdiction.
