The city of San Diego is situated along the Pacific Ocean in the Southwest part of California. Known for its record size naval fleet, the 372.1 square mile city attracts tourist and business class alike, nationally ranking San Diego as the eighth biggest city in population. Recreational parks Sea World and the San Diego Zoo help support economic growth alongside manufacturing company Qualcomm Incorporated. With so many residents and potential city-dwellers traveling throughout San Diego, arrests are sometimes made for assault which can include battery charges. It is in such instances that an arrested individual may benefit from getting in contact with an experienced San Diego assault defense lawyer.
Charges for assault and battery are usually tied together and happen in San Diego more often than some residents are aware. An argument may escalate or an accident can occur, putting the involved parties on emotional defense which can provoke physical response. Unfortunately, assault, as defined by California Penal Code Section 240, only requires the person to have desired to commit battery, or deliberate physical force on another person. Section 242 says that battery is merely physical contact without consent. In the event of an arrest for battery or assault, you may be left to question your legal rights pertaining to the matter and what course of action may be taken to defend those rights.
