Penalties For Violent Crimes Are Life-Changing

Violent crimes have harsh penalties that could alter your life forever. If you have been accused of assault, battery, murder or any type of violent crime, talk to an attorney immediately.

Even simple assault, which is considered a misdemeanor, could result in a 90-day jail sentence and a fine of 200 dollars. These penalties increase based on the offense. For example, assault with a weapon could lead to five years in prison and fines up to 5000 dollars. Charges of murder could be punished by life imprisonment or, in limited circumstances, death.

You do not want violent crime charges on your record and you certainly do not want a life sentence. Even once you are released from shorter sentences, you may find difficulty with employment or housing due to your record. The best course of action is to find a skilled criminal defense lawyer to gather evidence and passionately defend you against these life-changing penalties.
