A lot of criminal charges pose conditional issues such as chain of evidence (did the police properly bag and process the evidence they say they found?), conditional probability - the use of “if” in the opposing argument (i.e. If the defendant was at the gas station...), and arguments based on circumstantial evidence. In any of these cases, you will need an experienced criminal defense attorney to assess your situation and argue any conceptual issues on your behalf.
A good defense always starts with a good attorney. By providing legal counsel and using my knowledge and experience to build strategies, I am well-equipped to handle your case and defend your rights.
Determining the severity of criminal charges
Without an experienced criminal defense attorney, determining the severity of your crime can be difficult and inaccurate. However, it’s important to be aware that different crimes have different degrees of punishment. For example:
- Sex crimes have four degrees of severity (1st degree is punishable up to life sentencing and 4th degree is punishable by up to 2 years imprisonment and/or fines).
- Murder has three degrees of severity (1st degree/capital murder is punishable by up to life in prison and involuntary/voluntary manslaughter is punishable by up to 15 years in prison).
These examples are only to give you an idea of the varying degrees of punishment based on the severity of the crime and do not reflect actual sentencing models.
In any situation where you are charged with a crime, hiring a criminal defense attorney is the best way to determine the severity of your crime and to make sure all the facts of your case are evaluated. With my experience and knowledge of the criminal court, I can help you defend your name, your rights, and better your chances of a reduced sentence or an acquittal. Don’t waste time.
