Violent crimes are some that are difficult for the prosecution and the defense. The prosecution might feel pressure from the public to punish someone for the crime. The defense might feel as though they are walking on eggshells trying not to touch on sensitive subjects in the defense. We know that defendants often feel frustrated at the way the case is played out.
While it is true that crimes like rape and murder often have some gruesome and intimate details, this doesn't mean that a defendant can't present a defense. We have to focus on the facts of the case and work from there to determine the defense options that are possible for the case.
Violent crime charges often have very harsh penalties. These penalties are a reason why people who are facing the charges shouldn't just avoid thinking about what might happen. Making plans for the defense as early as possible is necessary. Once the base plan is in place, it is possible to alter the plan as new developments occur.
If you are facing a charge for a violent crime, we can work with you to go through the prosecution's case. We can help you to learn what options you have and how each option might affect you. This should give you some information to help you decide what you are going to do. As more decisions need to be made, we will work with you to make them. We are here to help you protect your rights and tell your side of what happened at the time of the incident.
