Defense Against Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Assault with a deadly weapon charges involve the attempt to commit an act of violence against another individual using an object that is capable of producing serious bodily injury. The object does not have to mean a gun or knife to be considered a weapon in this context. It can refer to anything from a bat to a frying pan or other object that could potentially cause injury. Even a person's hands or feet could be considered a deadly weapon if used in a way that has caused great physical injury or death.

Assault with a deadly weapon can be considered with a misdemeanor or felony crime, depending on the circumstances. This depends on the severity of the crime and the severity of the injuries to the victim.
