Defending from Allegations of Violence in South Bay, CA
Violent crimes are criminal offenses that involve the use of force or the threat of force against another person. Depending on the circumstances of the case, violent crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, with felonies carrying more severe penalties. However, whether you’re charged with a felony or a misdemeanor will have more to do with the evidence the prosecution thinks it has; the stronger their case, the bolder the sentence recommendation.
Allegations of violence are the most serious offenses in the criminal justice system: they carry the most severe penalties under the law, including lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines. When prosecutors bring forward violent crime charges, they won’t be taking it easy on you. If you are facing charges for a violent crime, it is crucial to seek the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Our Redondo Beach violent crime defense lawyer knows the gravity of these charges and the consequences they unleash on your life. That’s why our firm does everything possible to challenge the evidence against you, including any witness statements, forensic evidence, and surveillance footage. Any evidence collected unlawfully or through incorrect procedure will be barred from use against you.
One potential defense in a violent crime case is to challenge the prosecution's evidence and argue that the defendant did not commit the crime in question. Another defense could be to argue that the defendant acted in self-defense, or that they were under duress or had a mental impairment that influenced their actions. In some cases, it makes sense to challenge as much of the prosecution’s evidence as possible to pressure them into backing down to a lesser charge.
