In certain instances, assault charges can be charged as strikes. Penal Code Section 245(a) is assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. Penal Code Section 245(a) becomes a strike when a weapon, such as a gun or knife is used. If serious injury is suffered by the victim, then a strike great bodily injury allegation can be added.
Assault and battery cases must be thoroughly investigated and assessed in order to determine whether or not a defense exists. If the accused was acting in self-defense, then the accused may be considered not guilty.
Mr. Ham has successfully defended individuals accused of assault and battery charges with strike allegations. Mr. Ham recently defended a two strike assault and battery case by obtaining a reduction to one misdemeanor and no jail time.
