I was wondering what the "CNT 3" ment on a letter from the Probation Department Victim notification of hearing letter?
DUI / DWI Attorney
It means count 3 – Felony Penal Code 245 – assault with a deadly weapon.
Speeding / Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Count 3- PC 245-Assault with a Deadly Weapon
Criminal Defense Attorney
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.
