Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious crime. Under California Penal Code 245, any person who commits an assault upon the person of another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm or by any means of force likely to produce great bodily injury shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for up to one year, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and imprisonment. This crime is also considered a “serious felony” and will result in the defendant having a strike on his or her criminal record under the California “Three Strikes Law.”
