Tenacious Lawyer Fighting Violent Crime Charges in Dallas
Violent crime continues to be a serious problem in our society today. However, just because a person has been charged with a crime involving violence does not mean that he or she is automatically guilty of that crime. At our firm, we help clients facing all types of violent crime charges including:
Assault: The crime of assault includes making contact with another in a manner that causes injury or is offensive in nature;
Domestic violence: Violent acts toward a romantic partner or another member of your household can be prosecuted as domestic assault. Criminal charges are also possible for violating a protective order;
Robbery: Unlike other property crimes, the defining characteristic of the offense of robbery is the use of violence or the threat of violence to commit theft. Armed robbery and carjacking are especially serious types of robbery; and
Homicide: According to Texas law, criminal homicide includes murder, capital murder, manslaughter, and criminally negligent homicide. Causing a death related to drunk driving may be charged as intoxication manslaughter.
We also represent those who have been charged with weapons and firearms violations.
Violent crimes in Texas can be prosecuted as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on a number of factors, including where the alleged offense occurred, the age, status, or occupation of the victim, and the defendant's prior criminal history. Penalties for a violent crime can range from a short jail sentence for simple assault to life in prison without the possibility of parole for murder. Prosecutors could even seek the death penalty in capital murder cases.
