Meticulous plans are crucial for aggravated assault defenses

In a recent blog post, we discussed how you must take aggravated assault charges very seriously. We can help you to evaluate the options that you have for addressing these charges. Make sure that you don't sit around and waste time before you get your defense going. You can't think that these charges are just going to go away. We can help you to get your defense moving.

Learn how to evaluate the case against you

There is no such thing as a minor violent crime. If you are facing violent crime charges of any sort, you are facing serious penalties, including incarceration, fines and collateral consequences. All of these can have a big impact on your life. We know that you are ready to get moving on a defense against these charges. We are here to help.

Hate crimes are very serious and prosecuted harshly

Hate crimes can often involve violence. These crimes are especially troubling because the alleged victim is often chosen based on factors he or she can't control. These include race, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. If you are charged with a crime that is labeled as a hate crime, there is a chance that you could face very serious time in prison.

Every detail matters in violent crime charge defense cases

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.

Civil Commitment: Incarceration based solely on what might happen

Being convicted of a sexually-related offense carries a lifelong stigma and the consequences usually continue long after a period of incarceration is over. However, did you realize that it is possible to be held in involuntary confinement even after your prison term has been completed?

Dropped charges are sometimes possible, but don't count on it

Some people who are facing criminal charges choose to sit back and hope that the case will be dropped. While that is possible in a small number of cases, it isn't really a smart strategy to ignore the charges you are facing. In case you are wondering about why prosecutors would drop criminal charges, here are five of the reasons why that might occur.

All evidence has to be carefully considered in your defense

We recently discussed how biological evidence can have an important role in a criminal case. While that is only one aspect of a criminal case, it is one that can easily make or break a case. If your criminal case includes fingerprint, DNA, or other similar evidence, it is important that you take the time to learn about how you might be able to answer up for those types of evidence in your defense.
