Violent offenses carry some of the harshest punishment and are almost always charged by the District Attorney’s Office as “strike” offenses. The offenses include:
- Child Molestation
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Use of a gun, knife, or other deadly weapon
- Infliction of Great Bodily Injury
Under California law, a prison commitment is often mandated by statute upon conviction even for first time offenders. The one strike and “3 Strikes” law will also dictate a lengthy prison commitment if properly charged by the District Attorney’s Office.
Securing a highly skilled criminal attorney at the Law Offices of C. Bradley Patton, who is committed to conducting a thorough investigation and aggressively representing your legal interests, is essential to help avoid the dire consequences of these types of serious charges.
