Assault Defense Attorney in Santa Barbara

Anyone who has been arrested for a violent crime should be aware that a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. The burden of proof is on the prosecution, which means the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you did assault another person. In the case of aggravated assault, the prosecution must prove that you used a deadly weapon to do so.

If the prosecution proves its case you could face a long incarceration in jail or state prison, enormous fines, probation, parole, community service, and other serious consequences. An experienced assault defense attorney can evaluate the charges and the prosecution's case in order to develop a defense strategy based upon the unique circumstances of your case.
