Penalties for Motor Vehicle Assault
Whether a person becomes aggravated while on the road, purposely striking another person with their vehicle, or drives carelessly, such as while under the influence, and hits someone, they can be charged with motor vehicle assault. According to 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,” could be deemed guilty of such an offense. Unfortunately for those in San Jose charged with this crime, this offense can carry extremely serious penalties, something which our attorneys of the Law Office of Daniel Jensen, P.C., know can be frightening
