Violent crimes happen everywhere all the time. Surely, you’ve seen news articles or segments on the live news on television about a violent crime that recently occurred in your area. You might have even witnessed one occur right in front of you. And if you’re really unlucky, you were directly apart of one or are even being falsely accused of being the ignitor of one.
In the latter scenario, it matters to hire a violent crime criminal defense attorney in Southern California to assist you as you deal with your case. Doing so might be the best thing you do.
Types of Violent Crimes Worth Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney For
There are many types of violent crimes that you can hire a criminal defense lawyer for.
These crimes include, but are not excluded to:
- DUI murder
- Indecent exposure
- Simple assault
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Date rape
- Gang-related offenses
- Forcible penetration with a foreign object
- Domestic battery
- Lewd conduct
- Sexual battery
Essentially, any crime involving physical or sexual abuse can be considered a violent crime. These types of crimes are strongly looked down upon and, thus, are highly punishable if found guilty of committing any of these crimes, even just one time.
That being said, whether you’ve been falsely accused of one of these crimes or have committed one of these crimes but believe you deserve some slack in the courtroom for whatever reason that may be, a criminal defense attorney might just be able to assist you.
