Assault By Means Likely To Produce “GBI” | PC 245(A)(4)

Penal Code 245 A)(4) PC makes it a crime in California for a person to

  • Commit an assault
  • Do so using force that is likely to produce great bodily injury. 

An assault is an unlawful attempt to commit a violent injury to someone. Great bodily injury is a significant injury, like a broken bone. 

If charged as a misdemeanor, one can face imprisonment and a fine of up to $10,000. If charged as a felony, a person can face imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years. 

Sometimes this charge is paired with assault with a deadly weapon, with a firearm, or battery with serious bodily injury, which can add more jail time and fines.
