Weapon Assualt Charges - Assault with a Deadly Weapon Defense
Assault with a deadly weapon is a hybrid offense which can be charged under a variety of scenarios. The most common scenario is an assault which is committed with a deadly weapon, such as a gun or a knife. Under certain circumstances, this offense can be committed, without a weapon, when the force is applied in a manner likely to produce great bodily injury. If you are confused by this definition, you are not alone. Many attorneys do not understand the intricacies of this offense. As such, an experienced attorney is necessary to guarantee a person's rights are fully protected.
