wobbler
 n.— «This is a 1326 case, where the defendant argued that his state conviction of “assault with a deadly weapon” was a “wobbler” (parlance for either a felony or misdemeanor). The 9th agreed that this offense could be a “wobbler,” but the presumption is that it is a felony, and that the state court must do something to indicate that it is a misdemeanor.» —“US v. Diaz-Argueta, No. 05-10224 (5-16-06)” by Jon Sands Ninth Circuit Blog May 19, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
