Violent crimes cases are taken very seriously in court, and prosecutors in both state and federal courts argue fiercely to obtain a conviction. If convicted of a violent crime, the penalties can include fines, probation, and even incarceration.
In some cases, the convicted individual may be forced to participate in anger management classes as a form of punishment or following release.
If you were charged with one of these offenses, make sure you have a Plano violent crimes lawyer on your side who can fight for you. At the Edgett Law Firm, we offer free consultations to help you understand your case and build a strong defense. Call (972) 424-0760 now or contact us online to get started.
Penalties for Violent Crimes
Violent crimes are almost always a felony. If you are convicted, the consequences could extend beyond fines and incarceration, including losing the right to drive or obtain certain licenses, and making it difficult to find a job or own a home.
We offer legal defense for many violent crime cases, such as:
- Domestic violence
- Hate crimes
- Sexual assault
- Gang crimes
Prosecutors must prove that the defendant had every intention of doing harm to another person. Even violent threats, or threats of harming another. As part of the investigation process, Attorney Scott E. Edgett fights relentlessly to obtain reduced and dismissed charges.
