Assault is defined as an attempt or threat of violence upon another person, coupled with the apparent or actual ability to carry out the attempt or threat. To look at it from another perspective, assault may be defined as some act that is likely to result in injury to another person, thus putting that person in fear for their safety. Assault does not require that the alleged victim was actually injured. It is therefore easier for false or exaggerated assault charges to be made against a person. It may also be more difficult for the prosecuting attorney to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a defendant actually committed assault.

If you or someone you know was arrested for assault in Orange County, do not wait to involve an attorney. You need an Orange County criminal defense lawyer who can stand up for your legal rights and actively protect your interests through the extent of your case, regardless of whether it is in the investigatory stage or if charges have already been filed against you. At any point in your case, a competent attorney can begin working to help you secure a positive case result.
