Violent crime charges have some very serious consequences that you need to think about when you are trying to decide how you will handle your defense. There are many factors that come into the picture when you need to plan a defense strategy. The primary thing to remember here is that your defense must be based on facts. We know that it might be hard to think about having to tell your side of what happened. We are here to help you with that aspect of your case.
When you are making your plan, you must be willing to explore all the options that are open. There is a chance that you might not think that something will work for you but then once you write out a pros and cons list, you might see that it is actually one of the better options. Being open to finding out more about everything can help you during this phase of your case.
As you are thinking about these options, don't focus solely on the criminal justice aspect of the matter. Instead, look at how the choices can impact your life. For example, if you admit that you did something wrong and can get a plea deal for a lesser charge, your future might not be impacted as much.
It is imperative that you only consider a plea deal if you do admit that you are guilty of the crime. When you accept a plea deal, you waive your right to an appeal. This means that you aren't going to have any recourse. We can work with you to determine how you want to handle your case and set the plan in action.
