Were You Arrested for a Deadly Weapons Charge?

This offense occurs under California Penal Code section 245(a)(1) when the willful application of force, coupled with the present ability to carry out a threat of harm is committed using a weapon or force capable of producing great bodily injury or death of another person. A Deadly Weapon is defined as any object, instrument, or weapon that is inherently deadly or one that is used in such a way that it is capable of causing and is likely to cause death or great bodily injury when used against another person. The burden is on the prosecution to prove that the defendant did not act in self-defense. This charge is considered a violent offense, and the penalties usually involve jail or prison time. It is advised to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.



A Dangerous Weapons charge is a ‘violent crime’ in the eyes of the law, and therefore considered one of the more serious offenses in criminal law.

Crimes involving dangerous weapons include: Unlawful Manufacturing, Selling, or Possessing Dangerous Weapons, Brandishing a Weapon, Assualt with a Deadly Weapon, Felon with a Firearm, 10-20-Life Gun Laws, Possession of a Baton, Carrying a Concealed Firearm without a Permit, just to name a few. The laws regarding these types of crimes are very specific, and defending the charges can prove to be very tricky depending on the circumstances.

Seppi helped me out of a bind when I really needed it. No one else seemed to want to help me as much as him. It doesn’t get any better. I highly recommend.

Seppi was awesome.  He will answer his phone at 10pm on a Saturday or any other time you need him. I’ve never had to call back. A few other firms I talked to wanted me to call back several times before they could even give me a quote or advice. He took the time to really listen to me and was able to meet right away. The decision to hire him was obvious. I’ve never been in legal trouble before and he made me feel very comfortable and assured throughout the entire situation.

I had a situation where I was facing some serious time. The charges would have ruined my life. Seppi came through for me and now it’s not a problem. Very grateful.
