According to California’s penal code, assault and battery are two distinct crimes. If you plan to mount a successful defense for your criminal charge in the Palm Desert, the Coachella valley or the greater Inland Empire area, you’ll need to understand the difference between the two.
The penalties you’ll face if convicted of either of these crimes depends on a number of factors. However, even a misdemeanor conviction can create a permanent stain on your criminal record. Don’t let that happen to you!
Don’t face a trial involving an assault or battery charge without a strong defense attorney by your side.
