A violent crime is an extreme act in which an offender uses or threatens force upon another person. Violent crimes do not always include weapons, such as that in a sexual or domestic assault. They do, however, involve bodily harm, and almost always include severe penalties including prison. Violent crimes demand an experienced litigator, one who is well-versed in the complex intricacies of the law to help stand tough in defense of an aggressive violent crimes prosecution.
Crimes that are considered violent in nature include, but are not limited to:
Oftentimes charges are bundled, such as assault with a weapon’s charge, and the threat of jail time is real. Violent crimes, and acts of overt aggression and assault, are among the most despised in society and are aggressively prosecuted.
What Should You Do if You are Arrested for a Violent Crime such as Domestic Abuse or Assault with a Deadly Weapon
Don’t go at it alone, even for what you might consider a minor offense. You never know what could happen if counsel is not at your side for your court appearance. If you are arrested for a violent crime, do not talk to the police. Do not try to work your way out of the charge or minimize what you have done. The authorities will listen and hold it all against you. Exercise your constitutional right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer who handles violent crime charges ASAP. We are at a disadvantage defending you if you have given any sort of confession or incriminating statements. On the other hand, do not be antagonistic or sarcastic, but be firm in your request to call a criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights, remaining silent and composed in the meantime.
