Know your options for dealing with violent crime charges

As we recently discussed, opioids and violent crimes are the focuses of the new U.S. Attorney for this area. This means that more people might find themselves facing criminal charges for these types of cases. With this possibility looming, now is a good time for a reminder that you have to be ready to fight back against these charges if they are placed against you.

Opioids and violent crime are targets of the new U.S. Attorney

The opioid problem is one that has been covered almost constantly by the media. Another issue that is seemingly always making news is violent crime. The new U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri seems to have taken both of these issues to heart. He has noted that he plans to focus on these two problems.

Citizen oversight provides accountability, but might be gone

One of the primary focuses of a person who is facing time in prison for crimes like forgery, fraud or anything else is determining how he or she is going to survive prisons. Let's face it -- prisons in this country are horrible for the most part. Instead of focusing on rehabilitation, they simply lock people away with others who have been convicted of crimes and those who are facing charges.

Firearms used in criminal acts can mean harsh sentences

The use of a firearm in a crime can make the penalties that you face even harsher. As difficult as this is to think about, you must be realistic about the possible penalties if you are facing these charges. We know that you want to fight back against these charges. We are here to help you handle this.
