Violent crimes are treated more seriously than almost any other type of crime. Convictions for violent crimes can result in long term prison sentences, including jail sentences that include periods without parole eligibility. Special laws have been enacted to harshly punish certain types of violent crimes, including the No Early Release Act, where a convicted person must serve at least 85% of their sentence before being eligible for parole. In addition to prison time, the consequences can include parole, probation, hefty fines and other life altering consequences. Someone facing charges for a violent crime needs an experienced, skilled and reputable defense attorney to defend them and ensure the best possible outcome.
“Violent Crimes”, can include the following:
- Simple Assault;
- Aggravated Assault;
- Criminal Coercion;
- Sexual Assault;
- Criminal Restraint;
- Death By Auto;
- Terroristic Threats;
- Domestic Violence;
- False Imprisonment;
- Criminal Mischief.
Violent crimes can be successfully defended. A person acting in self-defense or defense of others can get charges dismissed because they are complete defenses to allegations of assault. Sometimes the facts don’t justify the charges or meet the elements of the crime. Other times, the prosecution just can’t prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, or overcharge the accused.
