Certain offenses can be blamed on issues of addiction or other societal problems. Society, however, shows no patience for those who commit acts of violence. Prosecutors aggressively pursue charges and judges are likely to show little leniency. Acts of violence can be charged as a felony and, if the accused individual is convicted, they will often face prison time. In addition to incarceration one can be straddled with a permanent criminal record, will have difficulty passing background checks, and may find themselves unable to obtain employment. Defendants often feel that they have no options after they have been arrested. The truth of the matter, however, is that there are legitimate defenses in such cases. It is important that you retain a criminal defense attorney who will protect your rights. Joey Tellez is a Laredo lawyer assisting Texas residents who have been charged with crimes of violence. We strive to provide the highest level of service and we are ready to assist you. Contact us today.
Laredo attorney handling misdemeanor and felony crimes of violence
Violence against others is criminalized on many levels. Depending on the circumstances you may find yourself charged with a misdemeanor, a felony, or “aggravated” charges. The prosecution will often bring additional charges on top of those related to the crime itself. Typical acts of violence which people find themselves charged with include:
- Family violence/Domestic violence
- Gun charges
- Stalking or Harassment
These types of offenses often revolve around the admissibility and reliability of eyewitness testimony, statements which law enforcement obtained from a defendant, and whether the accused was acting in self-defense. It is vital that you retain a lawyer who is familiar with litigating such matters and experienced in presenting cases to a jury.
