Assault cases in California are different from other types of violent crimes in that they do not require actual physical injury. In other words, you can be charged for assault if you were considered to have attempted to harm someone and had the ability to do so. Aggravated assault escalates this charge by claiming that you intended to cause great bodily harm (i.e., assault with a deadly weapon), and can result in prison time and heavy fines.

Aggravated assault is a complex charge that requires skilled defense. If you have been accused of aggravated assault, the attorney from the Law Offices of Tyson R. Beers can help. our Lancaster criminal defense attorney has more than 20 years of experience in criminal defense and is qualified to take your case on.


You can face charges of assault with a deadly weapon if you are accused of assault with the following:

  • Knife
  • Gun
  • Hazardous chemicals
  • Blunt weapon
  • Baseball bat
  • Any other item that could be used as a weapon

Almost anything can be considered a deadly weapon if used to cause serious injury. Even a person's body can fall under this category in certain circumstances. As a result, anyone is vulnerable to charges of aggravated assault.
