Assault and other violent crimes can be very difficult to defend yourself against. These crimes often have evidence that can be complex. In a previous blog post, we discussed the case of the man who was recently convicted of murdering his own child. That is only one example of the types of actions that can fall under the violent crimes category.
We know that you are probably distraught over the charges you are facing and that you might have gotten carried away in the heat of an argument. However, that may not have a huge impact on the defense that you present unless your actions were done in the heat of passion. In those cases, the circumstances might prove to be crucial.
The way that your defense is approached depends on several factors, including the actual charges, the evidence and the circumstances. As we work on your case, we look into each of these points to determine how each one will affect your case. We can go over each course of action that we might use in your case so that you can decide how you are going to move forward.
Violent crime cases are taken very seriously because of the victims involved, who may possibly offer first-person testimony against you regarding what happened at the time of the event. It could also mean that you are facing the possibility of considerable time in prison if you are convicted. When you combine all of these considerations together, it is evident that you need to get started on your defense right away.
