Let’s Work Together To Build A Defense Against Violent Crime Charges
At Teiger Law Center, P.C., we understand violent crime law and how extenuating circumstances can have a profound effect on the severity of sentence. The nature of the violence, whether verbal, mental or physical, will have great bearing on whether you or someone you know is charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. Violent crimes committed during drug trafficking or robbery can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors and carry punishments that include fines, restitution and prison sentences from one year to life.
Examples of violent crimes include:
- Assault and battery
- Sex crimes
- Armed robbery (even if the weapon wasn’t real)
- Murder and attempted murder
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter
- Aggravated assault
- Child abuse
- Hate crimes
- Terrorism charges
At our firm, we seek dismissal or reduction of charges and may argue diminished capacity due to drug or alcohol intoxication, mental illness or lack of/diminished capacity to form intent to commit a violent crime. We may be able to prove lack of intent or ability in other ways, as well, investigating your case looking for evidence to discredit charges.
If the case goes to trial, we will argue defense of a third party, mistaken identity or we may possibly petition a suppression of evidence. We may challenge statements that our client intended to make harmful or insulting contact and/or that it actually occurred. Our attorneys may be able to get the charges reduced by proving that the defendant was provoked and reacted as a reasonable person might. We are also experienced at detecting and proving false confessions obtained by means of threat, deception or coercion. Furthermore, our team of lawyers may be able to argue self-defense by proving that our client had no other way out, was attacked first or that our client stopped as soon as the threat was over.
