  3. To address part of your question that neither previous answers did -

    There is no 245(5) in the Penal Code. There is a 245.5 which is assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm against a school employee. The sentencing range is greater than a "regular" assault with a deadly weapon under Penal Code section 245(a)(1).

    Double check the code section and the paperwork you're referring to.

    Just FYI.
