San Francisco Best Criminal Lawyer Law Offices of David S. Chesley, Inc. San Francisco Criminal Defense Attorneys and DUI Lawyers
Our Highly skilled team of Trial Attorney's can help with a variety of legal problems. Here are some examples:
Assault and battery are often charged together, but these are not interchangeable criminal offenses. A conviction of assault or battery or both charges can have significant and lasting impact on the offender’s future and can become a part of its criminal record. The state of California has imposed harsh sentences for violent crimes and assault and battery are both punished under the laws for violent crime.
Driving Without a License
If you have been cited for driving without a license or driving with invalid license in the State of California, the laws will be tough on you. California has a strict code for vehicle and road discipline and has severe penalties for offenders. The laws and penalties against driving without license are different from laws dealing driving while suspended license. Driving without a license can be charged as an infraction or a misdemeanor criminal offense in California. So, if you are stuck with run in with law involving invalid driving license, it is in your best interest to contact a seasoned criminal defense lawyer that successfully defend you against these charges. With strict monetary and jail penalties, you should not take driving without license conviction lightly.
In California, child abuse is defined as the physical abuse of a minor. Parental discipline and caregiving are given great deference by courts, but a physical manifestation of injury is considered abuse. Any parent, stepparent, family member, caregiver, etc. may not injure a child but may use reasonable physical discipline with a child in their care. In order to convicted of child abuse, your actions must be intentional. This means the intention to do the action, not the intent to harm your child. The injury could be minor, such as a bruise or scratch, or serious, such as fractures or broken bones.
We Help People Accused of Crimes Related to the Possession or Sale of Marijuana and Prescription Drugs
We are living through a time of significant social changes, and our drug laws reflect many of those changes. Over the years and after much experience, we have come to a better understanding of the effects of various drugs, the potential health risks, and the severity of addiction on a large scale. California, as is often the case, is leading the nation with new, innovative drug policies in response to changing attitudes and new challenges. For example, California’s marijuana laws reflect a growing belief that marijuana should be decriminalized. Another example is California’s efforts to curb prescription opioid abuse in order to fight the opioid addiction epidemic. Accordingly, it’s important to understand these changes in the law and how they affect you.
The Penal Code in California defines the severity of an offense and punishments by the value of the object or property stolen, and in the manner, it is stolen from the owner of the property.
